Filing for Office

The Sarpy County Election Commission assists voters interested in running for office by helping them fill out the proper filing documents; however, the filing is not official until the paperwork reaches the proper filing office before the filing deadlines have passed. 

A candidate may file to run for any office that is up for election as long as they meet all of the requirements for that office. There may also be a filing fee associated with running for that office.

*Pursuant to Nebraska State Statute 32-111, an incumbent is defined as a "person whom the canvassers or the courts declare elected to an elective office or who has been appointed to an elective office."  Please note that the incumbent deadline applies also to a candidate who files for an office other than the current elected office held.
