    REVISED CANDIDATE FILING PROCEDURES

    City candidates file the following with the city elections office by fee or petition.

    By fee: 'SEL 101 Candidate Filing' form (dated 9/15);
    Pay required fee (may be set by City Charter or Ordinance).
    OR
    By petition:   'SEL 101 Candidate Filing' form marked 'Prospective Petition' (dated 9/15);
    'SEL 121 Candidate Signature Sheet - Nonpartisan' (dated 1/14);
    'SEL 338 Petition Submission – Candidate, Voters' Pamphlet' (dated 1/14).

    The City candidate will provide the initial petition to the City Election official to be reviewed for required information and if complete will be provided a petition number, the # of signatures of active registered voters within the district required and the filing deadline. ALL SIGNATURE SHEETS MUST BE APPROVED IN WRITING BY CITY ELECTION OFFICIAL BEFORE CIRCULATING CAN BEGIN. City candidates must have the lesser of either: 500 signatures or 1% of the votes cast in the electoral district for all candidates for Governor; must be obtained from at least 10% of the precincts in the city BUT City Charter or Ordinance may have different requirements which supersedes these requirements.

    When the candidate is ready to submit the SEL 101 and SEL 121 for review and verification: 'SEL 338 Petition Submission – Candidate, Voters' Pamphlet' is submitted; each sheet is signed and dated by the circulator; each sheet is sequentially numbered; submitted to the City Elections official for verification allowing time for the verification process to be completed PRIOR to the filing deadline.

    City Elections Official responsibility is: review SEL 101 for completeness; review SEL 121's for sufficient circulator certification; submit the SEL 121's to the County Elections office for signature verification. Once verified they will be returned to the City Elections official (plan to wait at the Election office for this process to be completed); notify the candidate of the results of the signature verification.

    Either by fee or petition process: The City Elections official will provide a notice of certified eligible City candidate names (spelled as they should be on the ballot), their filed position and the election date. This will be provided to the County Elections office prior to or by 5:00 p.m. on the filing deadline date (September 8, 2016).

    If a City Candidate chooses to withdraw from the election the process requires the City candidate to file 'SEL 150 Candidate Filing – Withdrawal' to the City Election official by 5:00 p.m. the filing deadline (September 8, 2016). County Elections office requests a notice of 'recertified' eligible City Candidate names that are still to be placed on the ballot be provided no later than the 5:00 p.m. filing deadline (September 8, 2016).

    County Elections will place the names of these candidates on the ballot per notice from the City Election official and facilitate the election process.

    The Mayor and City Councilors all serve the citizens of our community in a volunteer capacity.

    The City Charter provides for a Council/Manager form of city government. The City Council has seven members who are elected at large by City voters. Members serve four-year terms. The council elects the Mayor and a Council President to serve in the absence of the Mayor. The Council appoints a professional City Manager, who performs executive duties for the City, applying the policies made by the Council. The City Manager oversees the City Departments, expends funds as authorized, makes recommendations to the Council, and keeps them up to date on the City's business and financial condition.

    The Council is the policy-making body of the city. They adopt laws and regulations, annual goals and objectives and budgets that fund a wide range of public services. Council members give direction to city staff through the City Manager who serves at the pleasure of the city council. The mayor is the leader of the governing body and presides over the council meetings.

    For questions relating to the City Council for the City of King City, you can contact us at (503) 639-4082.
