Candidate filings underway for November election

The filing period for candidates in the November election is officially open, with the filing period running through Friday, August 7.

Colusa County Clerk-Recorder Rose Gallo-Vasquez said if an incumbent officeholder does not file, that deadline is extended to non-incumbents only until Wednesday, Aug. 12.

“The extended deadline does not apply if there is no incumbent,” she said.

The following is a list of the offices set for election:

The County Board of Education has seats up in Trustee Areas 1, 2 and 4 with area 4 being a short term 2-year seat.

In the Arbuckle area, Pierce Joint Unified School District has three Trustee seats open. The Arbuckle-College City Fire Protection District has three seats up. The Cortina Community Services District will have 4 seats up with two being short term 2-year seats.

In Williams, the Williams City Council has two seats to be filled, one City Clerk and one City Treasurer positions as well. The Williams Unified School District will have 4 Trustee seats with one being a short term 2-year seat.

The City of Colusa has three Council seats up, one City Clerk and one City Treasurer positions as well.

Colusa Unified School District has three Trustee seats up.

Princeton Joint Unified School District has two Trustee seats up for election.

Stony Creek Joint Unified School District will have one position up in the Colusa County portion of the district covering Trustee Area 4.

There are multiple positions up in the Maxwell area. The Maxwell Fire Protection District has three seats up. Maxwell Unified School District has three Trustee positions with one being a short term 2-year seat. Maxwell Recreation and Park District has 4 seats up with one being a short term 2-year seat. The Maxwell Public Utility District has three seats up with one being a short term 2-year seat.

In general, the qualifications for these offices require the candidate to be a registered voter of the district and applicable trustee area they are running for. There are no filing fees for any of these offices. Candidates have the option to publish a Candidate’s Statement of Qualifications in the county voter guide at their expense.

Candidates for City Council, City Treasurer or City Clerk obtain and file nomination papers and other candidacy forms at City Hall.

“In order to qualify, candidates must obtain a minimum of 20, but no more than 30 signatures from properly registered voters within their cities,” said Gallo-Vasquez.

Prospective candidates for all other offices obtain and file candidacy forms with the County Clerk-Recorder Registrar of Voters.

“Although not required, candidates are strongly encouraged to schedule appointments for filing due to Covid19,” said Gallo-Vasquez.

By scheduling an appointment to complete your candidate filing, the County Elections Office has the opportunity to work with candidates in advance of their appointment by phone and email to minimize the in-person time needed and help provide room for social distancing at the Elections Office.

The County of Colusa Elections Office is located at 546 Jay Street, Suite 200, Colusa, and available Monday, through Friday, 8:30 AM to 4 PM, with extended hours to 5 PM on filing deadline dates.

A calendar with the filing deadlines and list of incumbent office holders can be found at www.countyofcolusa.org/elections, or contact the County of Colusa Elections Office at 458-0500 for more information.
