In anticipation of delays caused by court challenges to the redistricting maps, Rep. Jerry Miller has filed a “just in case” bill to push out both the filing deadline and the primary election.

House Bill 323 was filed on Wednesday, January 20th, and sent to the Committee on Committees for assignment.

The bill moves the deadline to file as a candidate to May 31st at 4:00 PM.

It then moves the primary election to the first Tuesday in August, which is August 2nd.

It also suspends the designated times for certification of candidates and the drawing of ballot positions, and gives the Secretary of State or the county clerk the responsibility for determining when those must take place.
