Election Deadline June 8th for REC, DEC

Every four years Florida has “elections” for local party positions in Republican and Democratic parties. This appears to be a well-kept secret, as without elections the party establishment fills these seats with its own choices.
The deadline for filing is June 8, 2012. I confirmed the following instructions, generally, with the Palm Beach elections office. The blog post is aimed at Tea Party Republicans, but much of it applies to other Republicans and to Democrats as well.
Filing Process for Republican Executive Committee
I had previously heard that one cannot file before June 4th, but I did not hear that today.
The short version:
File this form with your county Supervisor of Elections: Candidate Oath (pdf)
File party loyalty oath with the party: Party Oath
Both must be “witnessed” (most banks have notaries) and both must be submitted by June 8th.
Comments and suggestions appreciated.
