NOMINATION PROCESS


CANDIDATE ELIGIBILITY

To be eligible for candidacy for the office of City Council of the City of Stanton, you must be a registered voter in the City of Stanton. Prior to issuing nomination papers, the registration of all prospective candidates will be verified with the Orange County Registrar of Voters.

NOMINATION PAPERS

Nomination papers are obtained from the City Clerk’s Office, beginning at 7:00 a.m. on Monday, July 13, 2020, through 5:00 p.m., Friday, August 7, 2020. Appointments are required.

If nomination papers for an incumbent member of the City Council are not filed by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, August 7, 2020, the voters shall have until 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 12, 2020, to nominate candidates other than the incumbent for such elective office.

Following verification that candidates are a registered voter in the City of Stanton, Candidate’s name will be typed onto the nomination paper and the nomination paper will be signed by the City Clerk or her designee and issued to the candidate for circulation.

In accordance with State law, the City Council has implemented a filing fee of $25 to be paid at the time Nomination Papers are filed. California Courts have ruled that we may not refuse to place a candidate’s name on the ballot due to an inability to pay the filing fee. If the City Clerk cannot waive the fee after review of financial documents, there is another alternative. Candidates may substitute four additional signatures for each one-dollar of the filing fee (100 additional signatures) in accordance with Elections Code Section 8106.
