Candidate Filings

Lists of candidates who have filed for each year's general election are available electronically from the Candidate Filing website, from the beginning of the early filing period. A description of the contents of the downloadable text files is in the candidate files layout file.

After the election, a list of candidates involved in the election may be found in the Downloadable Text Results for that election. Find these text files by going to the Election Results page, selecting the primary or general election desired, and clicking on the "Complete General Election Results" link.
