Candidates are required to submit their nomination papers in person — and show valid identification proving their name and current address —  at the Susan A. Thompson Building prior to the deadline of 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

If a candidate wants to withdraw their nomination, they have until 4:30 p.m. the day after the deadline.

At 6 p.m. on Sept. 21, election officials will hold a random draw to determine the order of the candidates’ names on the ballot.
