On Monday, June 15, 2020, Merced County Elections is launching our new online candidate portal. Through our Merced Elections website candidates, and prospective candidates, will be able to review a brief power point on the process of filing for office, access the filing portal where they can view and download the Candidate’s Handbook and request forms and documents required for filing to run for an office. Documents will be provided, upon request, electronically. The portal is open to all Candidates and Contests.
The Candidate Handbook (available through the portal) includes information on the qualifications for office and the terms of office for all seats up for election this November.
The portal helps us expand our footprint in the County and is available 24/7!
