A CEC meeting will be held at 6:00 pm to discuss Election matters, after which we will discuss candidate information, requirements, offices on the ballot, how to apply, etc.
There will be applications for a place on the Republican Ballot available for County candidates, Precinct Chair and County Chair candidates. They are available to download on our website.
Filing for Precinct Chairs opened Sept. 10. The filing period for all other candidates begins Nov. 9 and all filing periods end Dec. 9, 2019 at 6:00 PM sharp.
Applications must be notarized before they can be turned into the Chair, accompanied by a check for the appropriate filing fee (if required) or required signatures in lieu of filing fee. Please note that before you may file, you MUST file with the Texas Ethics Commission (TEC). Bring a copy of the filing with you to file for a place on the ballot.
You will have to contact Chairwoman Van Baale for an appointment to file your application, by calling 940-507-0707 or emailing Chair.JackCountyGOP@gmail.com. You may also, mail it and all required documents and filing fee to PO Box 876, Jacksboro, TX 76458.
Be sure your filing fee check will clear your bank. If it does not clear and the filing period is over, you may not re-file. If you arrive after the 6:00 PM deadline on Dec. 9, you may not file, even if you are standing at the door when it locks at 6:00 PM. File early to avoid these scenarios. If you choose not to run after you have filed, your filing fee is not returnable.
Come to our meetings Nov. 4 and Dec. 2 if you need more information. After you file, you may speak at any of our meetings before the Primary. You may call Ms. Van Baale with questions, as well.
God Bless Texas!
