What if I change my mind about being a candidate after filing nomination papers?

You may withdraw as a candidate at any time PRIOR to the close of the nomination period which is August 10, 2018, or August 15, 2018, if the nomination period is extended. After that date, your name cannot be withdrawn and will appear on the ballot.
