In Perth Amboy, New Jersey, USA, the mayor is elected. A candidate must first collect a certain number of signatures in order to be listed on the ballot. The signatures, I believe, are required to be on a special form.

I went to the city clerk asking for the required paperwork to run for mayor and was told they do not have it at this time because this is not an election year. I was told to "come back sometime next year". I would have though something like that would always be available.

Since I couldn't get a time frame from the clerk, I am asking... when is this material usually made available? The candidates must be given sufficient time to collect the required signatures.

    Which country and city are you asking about? Not all cities have the same principles. Over here, we don't even have elected mayors so they won't have such forms at all. ;) – JJ for Transparency and Monica Aug 23 at 23:55
