Yes, I got enough signatures that were legal, the petition was filed, and I can now officially campaign for town council! I'm pretty excited. Trepidatious, but excited.
And I realized that I have no freakin' clue what's next! So I go to the website and find this...
" The county voter registration office shall certify and file a petition that complies with the requirements of this chapter with the public official authorized to place names on the ballot (and with the town clerk-treasurer, if the petition of nomination is for a town office) not later than noon July 15. Following certification of a petition under this section, the office may, upon the request of a candidate named in the petition, return the original petition to the candidate for filing with the appropriate official in accordance with this subsection."
I got the original petition in the mail today, unrequested, so I need to find out what I am supposed to do with it. They kept the Candidate's Consent Form which showed how I wanted my name on the ballot. So I'm going to email the county clerk and see if I'm supposed to do anything further. I don't want to lose out for something simple. The Indiana Codes are, of course, vague.
So party tonight. Tomorrow, I start researching codes for campaign signs. I'm going to make one for my front yard. Woohoo!
