Candidates

Candidate shaking hands with the public

 

To run for office in San Francisco, you must file for candidacy with the Department of Elections. If you wish to file for federal or state office, visit the website of the California Secretary of State for information.

All candidates must complete the nomination process by the legal filing deadline established by law. The Department strongly encourages you to file all required forms in advance of the legal deadline. Filing early allows candidates ample time to satisfy requirements and correct any errors or omissions with your nomination documents. The Department cannot make exceptions to the filing deadline, under any circumstance.

The Department of Elections is happy to assist with your candidate filing needs. To schedule an appointment, call us or use our appointment form.
