WHO HAS FILED? The candidates whose filings have been accepted as valid and signed by the County Chair are posted on our
Candidate Filings 2016 page at http://dallasdemocrats.org/elections/380.html, along with the contact information they have given us, including links to websites etc. When candidates first apply for the Primary ballot, we post them unofficially on the DCDP Twitter page, and also (with known links and some photos of filings) at http://stoutdemblog.blogspot.com/ The officially filed candidates are also posted (without links) to the Secretary of State’s website at https://webservices.sos.state.tx.us/candidate-filing/cf-report.aspx


CANDIDATES FOR PRECINCT CHAIR began filing for the 2016 Primary ballot on September 15. Their deadline for filing is also set by law for the same time and date, 6 PM, Monday, December 14. The filing form is available online or at the DCDP office. They must be notarized, and we almost always have one or more notaries available at the office. If you get the form notarized elsewhere
you may bring it by, mail it in (BUT we must receive it by the filing deadline!), or even fax it in, but only after getting it notarized. There is no fee for filing for Precinct Chair. Read more, find a link to the form, and scroll down to see a list of precincts and vacancies at http://dallasdemocrats.org/about/precinct-chairs.html

NOTE: Even if you were elected to fill out a current term as Precinct Chair, those current terms end after next year’s Primary Runoff, so you will need to be filed in the Primary to be elected to the next two-year term.

HOURS FOR FILING: Besides our regular office hours, the DCDP office will also be open the last weekend before the filing deadline, from 10 AM to 5 PM on Saturday, December 12, and again from 1 PM to 5 PM on Sunday afternoon, December 13. Please do not wait until the last day for filing.

After filing: We will be having a FILING FIESTA PARTY starting at 6:30 PM once filing ends on the deadline day, Monday, December 14, at the party office at 4209 Parry Ave, Dallas 75223.


Order of candidates on the primary ballot? That will be determined by a drawing two days later, on Wednesday, December 16, at our HOLIDAY PARTY AND BALLOT DRAWING, at 6:30 PM at the CWA Union Hall, 1408 N. Washington Ave. at Bryan, Dallas. Candidates and their representatives and families, Precinct Chairs, and all Democrats are welcome to attend and join in the festivities!
