Officials say if you're interested but need more information on the process, to just call or stop by the elections office on the ground floor of the Courthouse.
"We have some books available, and we hope that people take an interest in the process and give us a call and see what needs to be done for them to be placed on the ballot for an office," Tara Hupp, deputy director of the board of elections, said.
