Petitions Being Circulated For May 20 Primary Election

Petitions Being Circulated For May 20 Primary Election

partiesBoth of Potter County’s political parties are looking to reverse a decades-long decline in interest as the 2014 election season gets underway. 

Candidates for Potter County Republican Chair position may now circulate nominating petitions to run for the office in the May 20 primary election. Those who obtain 100 signatures of registered party members will have their names listed on the GOP ballot. 

The Democratic County Chairman is selected by the Democratic County Committee, rather than by popular election.

 Incumbents are Carl Long, Republican, and Norma Cobb Nichols, Democrat.

Also on the May 20 ballot will be county Republican and Democratic Committee seats from each voting district in the county. Over the past quarter-century or more, both parties have had difficulty attracting candidates to run for these non-paid posts and committee meetings have been infrequent and sparsely attended. Ten signatures of registered voters within the voting district are required on those petitions.

Candidates have until March 11 to file their petitions with the Potter County Board of Elections.

Thank you for taking the time and Solomonswords for get the word out about these very important elections. There are dozens, maybe hundreds of people, both Republican and Democrat leaning that come on here and complain about our currently elected officals. Well here is your chance to make a difference. Get involved with your local party or shut up!
