The Spanish translation would appear here for candidates who request and purchase a Spanish translation of their Candidate’s Statement.

Or, this space would be used for other candidates running for the same office.

Candidate statements will appear in the same order as the candidates’ names appear on the ballot.


NOTE: If, due to excessive bulleting or any other reason, your candidate’s statement exceeds the 3.75" wide by 4.5" tall quarter page provided for each statement, you will be charged double for the additional space.

Or, the elections official may delete the bullets, and instead run the text together, separating the bulleted sections by semi-colons. Both bullets and a listing using semi-colons have been used in the sample above to illustrate this formatting.

Candidate’s who submit 400-word statements (if authorized by the jurisdiction) will be charged double for statements with 201 to 400 words.
