From the Harford County Board of Elections:
The Harford County Board of Elections will sponsor a candidate information forum on Wednesday, March 10, at 6:30 p.m.; and on Saturday, March 13, at 10 a.m., at the election office, located at 133 Industry Lane in Forest Hill.
This forum will provide information to the public who may be considering filing for public office, both political and non-partisan. Topics for discussion will include the procedure to file, eligibility requirements, and required forms. Although candidates for state offices must file at the State Board of Elections in Annapolis, the Harford County election office can assist candidates with questions and additional information.
This forum may also be helpful for citizens interested in running for an elected member of the Harford County Board of Education. Three board members will be elected in 2010 to represent Councilmanic Districts A (Edgewood and Joppatowne), B (Fallston and Abingdon), and D (North Harford). Six board members will be elected in 2014 to represent all councilmanic districts. One elected member will be elected from each of the six councilmanic districts only by the voters of that councilmanic district.
Board of Education candidates must run as nonpartisan but will be elected in the Gubernatorial General Election. If more than two candidates file for a board of education seat, candidates will run in the primary election. Beginning in the 2010 Primary Election, registered voters, who are not affiliated with the Republican or Democratic parties, may also vote for candidates for the nonpartisan elected school board positions.
For further information about this candidate information forum or to make a reservation, please call the Election Office at 410-638-3565.
