Our View: Local governments seeking candidates
Although DeKalb County Clerk John Acardo’s office has certified the preliminary ballot, there’s still time for those who want to get involved with local government to do so. And in many parts of DeKalb County, there are local governments that still need the help of interested citizens. There are more than 20 local offices in communities around the area that do not have enough candidates to fill the vacancies.
It’s too late to have your name printed on the ballot, but there is time to run as a write-in candidate for those offices. Anyone interested in running as a write-in must register with Acardo’s office by Thursday.
The filing process is easy: Citizens simply go to the elections office and fill out a one-page document and they’re on their way.
