The lottery is open to the public and candidates are not required to attend. All petitions that were filed by people waiting in line at the city clerk’s office at or before 9 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 19 - the first day to file candidacy papers - were considered simultaneously filed. Because two or more individuals were in line filing papers for the same office before 9 a.m. on that day, the city clerk will determine the order of candidates’ names on the ballot via a lottery.
The order of filing determines the position of the candidate’s name on the ballot. Any petitions that were submitted after 9 a.m. on Nov. 19 will be on the ballot in the order they were received.
