Running for Elected Office

from the Town of Wayland website online here See that link for complete post.

Candidates seeking elected office must “run” for office by obtaining Nomination Papers from the Office of the Town Clerk, obtain necessary signatures of voters, and file papers by appropriate deadline. Each candidate shall file with the Town Clerk, prior to obtaining blank nomination papers, a written statement containing his/her name and address, and the town office for which he/she intends to be a candidate. The Board of Registrars must certify each candidate’s voter registration status prior to candidates qualifying to obtain nomination papers. Upon certification of sufficient signatures for all candidates seeking nomination to the offices for which papers had been obtained, the candidate qualifies to have his/her name on the ballot for the election.
