Election filing deadline Friday

With the deadline for filing as a candidate a day away, there are more seats up for election on Nov. 4 than potential candidates in Tuolumne County.

As of Wednesday, four of the county’s special district boards with open seats remained without a single potential candidate. And even the highest-profile special district, Tuolumne Utilities District, only has seen three potential candidates initiate paperwork for the three seats up for election in November.

 

That means that if the election deadline had been Wednesday, the county Assessor-Recorder and Yosemite Community College District would be the only races to appear on local ballots.

“This is pretty quiet,” said county Registrar of Voters Deborah Bautista, who oversaw a local election with only three contested races in June.

To get on the November general election ballot, candidates have until Friday to complete and file the paperwork with the county Elections Office. The same is true for voter initiatives, though Russell said it’s “too late” for any local referendums to appear on the ballot because of other steps that must be taken before the deadline.

As of Wednesday afternoon, only three people had initiated the paperwork for seats on the TUD board — incumbent Delbert Rotelli, former Director Jim Grinnell and retiree Jerry Morrow. However, if they are the only registered candidates at the end the day Friday, district residents will have until Wednesday to get on the ballot because current board members Mike Sarno and Ruanne Mikkelson have already announced they won’t run for another term.
