(Carson City, NV; February 24, 2012) — Candidate filing for non-judicial offices on the 2014 ballot will take place between 8 a.m. on Monday, March 3 through 5 p.m. on Friday, March 14. Secretary of State Ross Miller encourages candidates filing at the Secretary of State’s office to schedule appointments in advance with Elections Division filing officers in Carson City or Las Vegas.
Candidates for U.S. Congressional Districts, all State Constitutional offices, State Senate seats, and State Assembly seats that cross county lines file their Declarations of Candidacy with the Secretary of State’s office.

Appointments will be scheduled on a first call-first served basis. Elections Division staff will do their best to accommodate individuals’ schedules.
