Lincoln -- Lancaster County Election Commissioner David Shively reminded potential candidates for Lincoln City Council and Lincoln Airport Authority that the filing deadline for the April 9th Lincoln City Primary Election is 4:30 p.m. on Friday, March 8th.
Shively also reminded candidates filing for City Council and Airport Authority that they must pay a $25 filing fee to the Lincoln City Treasurer and have petitions signed by at least 150 registered voters. In addition, the candidate must also complete a Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Statement of Financial Interests Form (also known as a C-1Form).
