Your candidate statement can include information about your education, experience, and other qualifications, and shall not include information about your party affiliations, memberships, or activities in any political party organizations. (Election Code §13307(a) and §13308). Listing memberships or affiliations with organizations that are found to have distinct political inclinations may not be accepted.
You shall not directly or indirectly reference any other candidate, nor suggest or imply the qualification of other candidates by stating “I’m the only candidate…”, or any other similar wording.
If your statement does not comply, the elections official will require changes.
Endorsements by individuals and organizations are allowed but must be verified by written authorization (email is acceptable) directly from the endorsers. The endorsement letter must include the candidate’s name, the elective office, the date of the election, and the name of the endorser.
The use of non-endorsing individual or organization’s name in a statement is only allowed if being used exclusively as biographical information.
