Candidate Qualifications


Candidate qualifications are as follows:
  1. A candidate for local office must be a qualified elector at the time of filing their nomination paper.
  2. Any such candidate, in addition to the other requirements, must be 18 years of age or over in general law cities and towns.
  3. Candidates for local office must also have resided in the town for 1 year preceding the election. This 1-year residency requirement also permits persons living in an area that is annexed to a city or town less than 1 year prior to the election to qualify as a candidate if they meet all other requirements for candidates. To meet all other requirements, such candidates must still have resided for 1 year prior to the election in the area which was subsequently annexed.
  4. Concerning the question of candidate qualifications, it should be noted that a person convicted of a felony cannot serve as a councilmember until he/she has been restored their civil rights.
As previously noted, a councilmember must possess all of the qualifications of an elector, in general law cities and towns. The qualifications for an elector, in part, prohibit any person convicted of treason or a felony from being qualified to vote at any election, unless his civil rights are restored.

Also, if a person has been adjudicated an "incapacitated person", he is ineligible to vote at any election. Hence, it is clear that no person formerly convicted of a felony can be a candidate for office unless his civil rights are restored, nor can an "incapacitated person" be a candidate as such a person does not possess voter qualifications.

Also, a person cannot be a candidate for more than 1 public office if the elections for those offices are held on the same day and if the person would be prohibited from serving in the offices simultaneously.

Members of the Legislature


A member of the State Legislature is prohibited from holding office in a city or town. The only offices a legislator may hold while serving as a member of the Legislature are school trustee, teacher or instructor.


Federal Civilian Employees


Generally, employees in the Executive Branch of the Federal Government may not take an active part in political management or in political campaigns. However, they may run for local office in non-party elections; that is, elections in which no candidate for local office is identified on the ballot as representing any political party, including a nonpartisan party. In other words, Federal employees may participate in non-party local elections in which party designation and nomination are completely absent.
