(Dec. 31, 2013) LITTLE ROCK — Secretary of State Mark Martin reminds potential nonpartisan judicial and prosecutorial candidates of important deadlines this week.
“On this last day of the year, it is important for people affected by these deadlines to take appropriate action,” Martin said. “We want to make sure they are aware of the important dates today and later this week.”
Thursday, Jan. 2, 2014, is the first day on which nonpartisan judicial and prosecutorial candidates may file petitions with the Secretary of State’s office to get on the ballot without payment of a filing fee.
“This is also the first time that candidates for district judge will file with the Secretary of State’s office,” Martin said. “We expect Thursday to be the start of a very active period of petition filing as we prepare for the 2014 midterm elections.”
