The nomination period for these offices begins on July 13, 2020 and closes on August 7, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.  During this period, San Clemente registered voters may take out, circulate and file nomination papers. If one or more of the incumbent(s) for the office(s) being voted upon do not file nomination papers by 5:00 p.m. on August 7, 2020, the filing period for the specific office(s) for which an incumbent failed to file will be extended until August 12, 2020 at 5:30 p.m. for all San Clemente registered voters except the incumbent(s) that failed to file by August 7, 2020.  The office of Member of the City Council for the two-year short term is not eligible for a possible extended filing period because the office is currently vacant and California Elections Code Section 10225(b) specifies that an extended filing period does not apply when there is no incumbent eligible to be elected.
