This section must be completed in the presence of a notary public and appropriately notarized. Each page should be numbered as printed in the lower right hand corner of each document. All pages of the nomination paper should be properly secured in an appropriate manner so as not to be separated from other pages. The minimum number of signatures to be secured to be considered a candidate is one hundred, twenty-one (121).

 

Each candidate listed on the nomination paper must complete a separate candidate’s affidavit, waiver of expense, and statement of financial interests. Additional copies, if necessary, may be photocopied or are available at the Voter Registration office.
