Filing for city seats to begin Monday

(Continued)

NORMAN —

Candidates are required to complete a Declaration of Candidacy form which is available for download on the Cleveland County Election Board website, clevelandcountyelectionboard.com. Forms are also available at the election board office, 641 E. Robinson St. The forms must be notarized and returned to the board.

Election board staff cannot notarize candidate filing papers. Because Norman city council elections are non-partisan, when completing the Declaration of Candidacy form, all candidates should leave political party blank.

Norman has an Election Commission, which is charged with the oversight of candidate campaign finance rules and other campaign issues such as signs. A public meeting to introduce city candidates and other interested persons to campaign finance and signage laws will be 6 p.m. Jan. 30 in the City Council Chambers, 201 W. Gray St.

The informative meeting is open to the public.

“It’s not just for candidates,” Election Commission Chair Ty Hardiman said. “It’s for any committee or anyone else who might be spending money on a campaign or anyone who wants to know more.”

Anyone who seeks nomination or election to city office and any individual or committee acting to promote or oppose a city candidate and spends or receives $500 or more must file contribution and expenditure reports with the city. Campaign finances must be reported 10 days prior to the election.

More information is available at the Norman City Clerk’s office and at the informational meeting Jan. 30.
