Judicial Candidate Qualifying

A candidate must file a “Statement of Intent” to be a candidate for judicial office.  The deadline is 5:00 PM on the first Friday after the first Monday in May (May 11, 2018) prior to the general election.  Miss. Code Ann. §23-15-977.

A candidate must also file an “Affidavit of Judicial Candidate.”  In this affidavit, the candidate must agree abide by all laws for election for judicial office.  Miss. Code Ann. §23-15-977.1.

These documents and the required fee are filed with the State Board of Election Commissioners, at the Secretary of State’s office.
