The four-week candidate filing period began July 12.
For potential candidates and their staff, a free 90-minute seminar will be held from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 20, at the San Mateo County Elections Office at 40 Tower Road in San Mateo.
To reserve a seat, contact Filing Officer Megan Asmus at 312-5293 or at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, the office you're seeking, and the number of people who will accompany you.
Everyone who attends receives a 75-page candidate's guide, a useful document since laws, forms and reporting requirements may differ from election to election, said Chief Elections Officer Warren Slocum.
