The filing deadline for non-partisan races that will appear on the ballot this fall may be closer than many people think.

    Legislative action in 2019 moved that deadline ahead by more than 60 
days.
    Senate Bill 60 established Tuesday, June 2 at 4 p.m. as the deadline 
for non-partisan candidates to file.
    The deadline previously would have been the second Tuesday in August.
    Non-partisan races on the local ballot this year will include all 
six seats on the Monticello City Council and three positions on the 
Wayne County Board of Education.
    The school board races on the ballot this year include the seats in 
District One, District Two and District Five.
    Since these races are non-partisan they are not subject to a primary 
election.
    Wayne County Clerk Heather Piercy said that no candidates have filed 
yet in any of these races.
    The filing window is open at this time for anyone who is interested in these races.
