Candidates for 2021 Elections are wanted


We are always looking for interested, involved, capable and caring citizens who want to make Oswego County a better place to live.

Now is the time to consider being a candidate in the 2021 elections. The process of running for office starts long before the election. Starting early allows time for planning and gathering a team and resources. Petitions are circulated in March to get a spot on the ballot in November. Training sessions are held in the spring.

If you are interested in running for an office, contact us for information. We will help you learn what you need to do to run a successful campaign and assist you throughout the process.

Most local offices are elected in the odd years. Local offices include:

Town Supervisors
Town Board Members
Town Clerks
Town Highway Superintendents
City Aldermen

County Legislators

County Treasurer

County Sheriff

State and Federal positions are usually in the even years.
