No candidates have filed for mayor as of this time, though two candidates, incumbent Mayor Cindy Rosenthal and challenger Tom Sherman, have declared an intention to run.
The filing ends at 5 p.m. Wednesday for Ward 1, 3, 5 and 7 and the mayor’s position.
The filing fee is $50 for city council and $75 for mayor. The filing fee must be in the form of a cashier’s or certified check and must be made out to the “Secretary, Cleveland County Election Board.”
Candidates filing for office must complete a Declaration of Candidacy, which is available for download on the Election Board website, clevelandcountyelectionboard.com. Forms also are available at the Election Board office. This form must be notarized, and the Election Board cannot notarize candidate filing papers.
Because Norman City Council elections are non-partisan, when completing the Declaration of Candidacy form, all candidates should leave their political party blank.
