CREATE A PARTY
Candidates can also get on the ballot by creating their own party by securing signatures of 5 percent of those who voted in the last gubernatorial election. In the city, that amounts to about 250 names.
Those signatures cannot come from voters who have already signed a petition for that same office. The candidate must also submit an emblem for the party they create.
The deadline to form their own party is Aug. 9.
Candidates for town offices on the major party lines will be selected by town party caucuses. The deadline for those is Sept. 17.
