Democratic Candidates

Below are the current Federal, State, and Hillsborough County candidates who have filed to be on the 2018 ballot. Additional candidates may file, and we will update the list.  All candidates need to qualify to be on the ballot. Qualifying is done by either paying the qualifying fee which is different for each office or by collecting signature petitions the number of petitions needed also varies by the office.  If a candidate has a website we have linked their name to it or a Facebook page. If a candidate does not yet have a website or FB page, we have linked their name to their filing information. If you see a candidate, you like, please support them! They may not make it on the ballot unless they have your help!  

Here is a chart from the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections with voter registration deadlines and election dates.
