Candidates continued to file declarations Tuesday for a number of municipal posts up for election April 2 in 13 area towns and cities.
All of the municipal elections are nonpartisan. Filing fees are not required. However, prospective candidates must meet eligibility requirements.
State law requires candidates to be registered voters “at an address (located) within the municipality, or of the ward where the office is from a ward, for at least six months prior to filing a declaration of candidacy.”
Election officials said declarations may be filed from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. today at the election board office in the appropriate counties. Challenges or candidate contests must be filed by 5 p.m. Friday.
