Qualifying Fees


Qualifying Fees will be updated soon. Section 99.092, F.S. states that the annual salary of the office for purposes of computing the filing fee, election assessment, and party assessment shall be computed by multiplying 12 times the monthly salary, excluding any special qualification pay, authorized for such office as of July 1 immediately preceding the first day of qualifying.

Qualifying Fees for 2018
Qualifying fees must be paid by a check drawn on your campaign account. The only exception is for special district candidates. Special district candidates are not required to open a campaign account if they will not be accepting any contributions or making any further expenditures (other than their qualifying fee or verification fee for candidate petitions).
