NOTE Candidate Filing:  At the time of filing for ANY Office be present and ready to file. 
“Being present to file” also includes being ready to file. Being ready to file means that a person can complete the filing process without delay, without leaving the building, without waiting for documents to arrive, and without getting out of any line that may be present at the time. Completing the SICPP at the desk is permissible as long as the person can complete the form at the desk without delay. Writing any filing fee check at the desk is permissible as long as it can be done without delay. Updating a person’s voter registration at the desk prior to filing is permissible as long as it can be done without delay. In other words, a person must be present to file and be ready to complete the entire filing process without delay.
