Qualifications

Is there an area to check out the qualifications needed to run, like filing fees, etc?

Check State Board

Go to the State Board of Elections website , click on Candidate Filing and go down through the menu for Fact Sheets, Filing Fees, Filing Requirements etc.

For local races check your county Board of Elections

In most cases

You have to be 21, a registered voter in the district, and someone who does not deny the existence of Almighty God. Most of the time, the filing fee is exactly (or very close to) 1% of the annual salary of the position.

Exceptions:
State Senate, U.S. Congress - Must be age 25
Governor or Lt. Gov., U.S. Senate - Must be 30
Atty. General, any kind of Judge, D.A. - Must be a member in good standing of the Bar

But it's here.

No one has the testicles to remove it

No one at the General Assembly wants to take responsibility for raising the issue, and there's a chunk of fundamentalists in this state who would LOVE to make an issue of it in a courtroom. So it just sits there, unenforced, undisturbed, and largely ignored.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing

Whoa...

By God, it IS there...

PS

How do I add events like this one? I may need to add quite a few soon ...
