Filing Requirements and Election Date

On May 1, 2003, Rep. Dick Myers (D-Iowa City) announced his resignation from the House District 30 seat effective July 1, 2003.  A special election was required to fill the remainder of the term (through December 31, 2004).

Political party nominations are determined by a special convention of the party precinct committee members whose precincts lie within the district (Iowa Code 43.78 c).  The Republican convention was held June 9; Democrats held their convention on July 2.

Other candidates would have been able to file through the nomination by petition process (50 signatures required).  (44.4, 45.1(4))  The deadline was 5 p.m. August 1, 25 days before the election date (Iowa Code 69.12c, 44.4).

All candidates file with the Secretary of State's office.  All candidates file an affidavit of candidacy.  Party candidates file a certificate of nomination by convention; other candidates file nomination petitions.

Candidates must live in the state for 1 year, be a resident in the district for 60 days before the election day, and be at least 21 years of age (Art. III, IA Constitution).

The special election date was determined by Governor Vilsack, as specified by law (Iowa Code 69.14).

By law the election could not be combined with the September 9 school election or the October 7 Iowa City primary.
