Final candidates filed for 2020 election, almost
The Ford County Clerk's Office released an almost finalized list of candidates that have filed for the 2020 election cycle.
According to Ford County Clerk Debbie Cox, the state candidates are not official yet as the state will send the official list by June 15.
There will be three options to cast a vote.
In-office advance voting begins July 16 for the primary election, with two evening voting times and a Saturday voting time.
In-office advance voting will take place in the Rose Room of the Government Center basement to have machines properly distanced.
The primary will be Aug. 4, with voting taking place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
"You may ask for a ballot by mail to be sent to your home. This is always an option for every election," Ford County Clerk Debbie Cox said. "This year, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the clerk’s office is mailing out Applications for Ballot By Mail.
"There will be two applications if you would like to request a ballot for the August Primary and or the November General. Fill out one request for each election, with the election date at the bottom; Aug. 4, for the primary and Nov. 3, for the November General."
You will not have to fill out a new application if you are already on the Permanent Advance list.
Those with a disability who would like to be on the permanent advance list may call the clerk's office at 620-227-4551. The application for the Permanent Advance Ballot will then be sent out.
Deadline to change party affiliation will be noon June 1 for the primary election and the last day to register to vote for the primary will be on July 14.
