Nomination Papers are obtained from the City Clerk’s Office, beginning at 7:30 a.m. on Monday, July 13, 2020, through 4:00 p.m. on Friday, August 7, 2020. You are encouraged to file your nomination papers early to correct any possible errors or insufficiencies in the forms.

Following verification that you are a registered voter in the City of Los Alamitos and you reside in the desired District, your name will be typed onto the Nomination Paper and the Nomination Paper will be signed by the City Clerk or her designee and issued to you for circulation.

In accordance with State law, the City Council has implemented a filing fee of $25 to be paid at the time Nomination Papers are filed. California Courts have ruled that we may not refuse to place a candidate’s name on the ballot due to an inability to pay the filing fee.  If the City Clerk cannot waive the fee after review of financial documents, there is another alternative.  Candidates may substitute four additional signatures for each one-dollar of the filing fee (100 additional signatures) in accordance with Elections Code Section 8106.
