    As far as Et Al are concerned, there are only a few days left to submit petitions to run against them in a primary. But the opportunity to run against them as an independent is just starting.

    INDEPENDENT PETITIONS FOR STATE/LOCAL OFFICES

    July 10

    First day for signing nominating petitions for state/local offices. §6-138(4)

    Aug 14 – Aug. 21

    Dates for filing independent nominating petitions for state/local office. §6-158(9)

    Aug. 24

    Last day to accept or decline nomination for state/local office. §6-158(11)

    The signature requirements are steep. They must all be registered voters within your district, and any error will be deemed “fraud” and disqualify all petitions, so don’t make a mistake on the date or use a nickname or something.
