Application GuidelinesTo file for this position follow these three simple steps: 1) Contact the La Mesa City Clerk to verify that your address qualifies for the position. 2) Obtain the correct filing papers from the city elections office. Elections administrators understand that first time candidates may have additional questions, so we suggest asking any additional questions regarding filing for office (like the amount of petition signatures, filing fees, or to double check filing windows/dates). 3) Submit the filing papers within 113-88 days prior to the election, but make sure that these dates are verified with the office that you will be submitting the paperwork to. Election deadlines are unforgiving and misunderstanding them will prevent you from appearing on the ballot. If you have any questions, the La Mesa City Clerk can be reached by phone at 619-463-6611.
