Eligible Sunbury residents must file a nominating petition with the Delaware County Board of Elections by August 22, 2018, to be placed on the ballot for the charter commission. The nominating petition must be signed by at least 25 registered Sunbury voters. (Tip: signatures on petitions are occasionally invalidated by the Board of Elections for technical reasons, such as the signature or address being unreadable, the signator is not actually a resident of Sunbury and registered to vote, etc., so it is advisable to collect more than 25 signatures to ensure that at least 25 signatures are valid.)
The Delaware County Board of Elections can be contacted regarding petitions at:
Address: 2079 US Highway 23 N, PO Box 8006, Delaware OH 43015
Candidates that have successfully filed their nominating petitions with the Board of Election will be placed on the November 6, 2018 ballot for the charter commission. The 15 candidates receiving the most votes on November 6, 2018 will be elected to the charter commission.
