Council filing deadline is today
SoVaNow.com / March 05, 2014The filing deadline for independent and third party candidates running for local office in the May 6 general election in Mecklenburg County has been pushed back to today, Wednesday, March 5 at 7 p.m. according to Elections Registrar Jason Corwin.
The original deadline was March 4 at 7 p.m., but the snow and ice storm that pushed through Southern Virginia late Monday closed all county offices on Tuesday. This forced Corwin to extend the deadline to accept petitions from candidates for municipal offices, allowing candidates one extra day to file.
As of Monday, Corwin said his office had received petitions from only two Clarksville Town Council candidates — all six council members and the mayor are up for election this year due to the recent annexation agreement between Mecklenburg County and Clarksville.
The March 27, filing deadline for party-affiliated candidates running for U.S. House or U.S. Senate is unchanged, as is the filing deadline for independent candidates running for those offices, which is June 10.
