Nomination Papers 2014 – Photo Gallery
Thank you again to everyone who signed the nomination papers for our 13 excellent candidates. We collected 1,391 total signatures for the 13 candidates! We surpassed the requirement of a total of 650 signatures for all our candidates to qualify for the November election ballot.
The election rules favor the political parties who can put all their local candidates on one nomination paper. They were only required to get a total of 50 signatures for all their candidates combined. We think the election rules should allow independent candidates who are running together to be grouped on one nomination paper, but the parties likely won’t ever agree to that. So we apologize to all of you who got writer’s cramp, but it seems unavoidable until the rules change.
