To clarify the statement in the article that reads "Incumbents who have not yet filled will be able to do so until March 14." is incorrect. It should read:

"Incumbents who failed to file by the March 9th deadline are NOT eligible to file during the extension period. Only Candidates who are NOT incumbents are able to withdraw papers and file for the extended offices only. The deadline for the extended offices is March 14th at 5:00 pm.

The definition of "incumbent" is the current elected official holding the office. This is just to clarify who is eligible to file during the extension period.

Thank you for sharing all the information with the public.

Sincerely, Angela Curro, Asst. County Clerk/Recorder/Registrar of Voters
