The City of San Diego will hold a Special Mayor Election on Tuesday, November 19, 2013.  To run for Mayor, a candidate must be at least 18 years of  age, a registered voter in the City of San Diego for at least 30 days prior to filing nomination papers, and a resident in and registered voter of the City of San Diego at the time of assuming the office.

The San Diego City Clerk’s Special Mayor Election website page lists who are the “potential candidates” for the office of Mayor.   A person is considered a “potential candidate” when he or she has filed a Candidate Intention Statement (FPPC form 501) with the City Clerk’s Office. A potential candidate becomes an official candidate after the nomination period closes and the candidate’s sufficient petition has been verified.

Visit the San Diego City Clerk’s website for more information on important filing dates, nomination papers and candidate orientation schedule.
