Salaries, Filing Fees, and Terms for Elective Offices

State law provides that candidates pay a filing fee at the time they file for office. The fee is equal to one percent (1%) of the annual salary for the office sought. For example, if the office sought has an annual salary of $20,000, the filing fee would be two hundred dollars ($200). The filing fee is calculated according to the salary of the office at the time of filing.
