Candidate Filing Fees

View the list of state and federal candidate filing fees​.

The filing fee is due with the declaration of candidacy. Candidates may pay online with a major credit card, and by personal check or cash if filing by mail or in person. The filing fee is non-refundable.

Candidates unable to pay the filing fee may instead submit a filing fee petition (PDF/Word​). The number of valid signatures required for each office is equal to the filing fee (one signature per dollar) for that office.
