Fresh on the heels of Tuesday’s School Elections, Cass County Auditor Dale Sunderman is reminding persons interested in running for the November 3rd City Elections, that nomination forms are still available from the County Auditor, your City Clerk, or online from the Iowa Secretary of State. This year, nomination papers for elected city office positions must be filed with the County Auditor, rather than with your city clerk. Nomination papers may be filed with the County Auditor through Sept. 17th.
The process for filing nomination petitions is available from the Iowa Secretary of State’s website at www.sos.iowa.gov. That same site, or your local city clerk, is the source for obtaining an original nomination petition and candidate’s guide.
