There’s Still Time to Run for San Juan Fire District, Shaw School District and More

From San Juan County

You almost missed your chance to run for office.

Fortunately, you’ll get a second chance. During the candidate filing period in May, several of the offices open for filing had no candidates file. When no one files for an open office, it’s called a “void in candidacy.” When a void in candidacy occurs after a regular filing period, a special three-day filing period is opened for only those offices for whom no candidates filed.

The local races that will be open for filing are all local special purpose districts: school, fire, cemetery, and water districts.

San Juan County Elections Office will hold a special three-day filing period starting next Wednesday, June 23, and ending on Friday, June 25.

Persons interested in filing as a candidate for one of the offices below can do so online, by mail, by email, or in person. The Online Candidate Filing Wizard will be opened from 9 a.m. Wednesday through 4 p.m. Friday.

Paper Declarations of Candidacy will be accepted from 8 a.m. Wednesday through 4:30 p.m. Friday. The online Candidate Filing Wizard and paper Declaration of Candidacy can both be found at

The following offices will be open during the three-day filing period:
