CANDIDATE FILING DEADLINE COMPLETED FOR JUNE 5, 2018 PRIMARY ELECTION

One statewide race has been extended due to the incumbent not filing

 

Fresno, CA – Fresno County Clerk Brandi Orth has announced the close of candidate filing for the June 5, 2018 primary election. The official close was Friday, March 9th at 5:00PM.  However, since the incumbent State Treasurer did not file for re-election, this race only is extended to Wednesday, March 14, 2018 at 5:00PM.

Upon the closing of filing, Clerk Orth said, “We are looking forward to another efficient Fresno County election. I encourage all voters to check their registration with our one-stop online process at www.fresnovote.com , where a variety of useful information can be found, including the address where a voter is registered, the voter’s political party, and if the voter is a permanent vote by mail voter, meaning the voter’s ballot will automatically be mailed to the voter prior to each election.” She continued, “I urge anyone with a question, a comment or a request for assistance to contact our office. We can be reached via phone at (559) 600-VOTE (8683) or by email at clerk-elections@co.fresno.ca.us  and we are always happy to help.
