If a political party has adopted a primary election for a particular contest/district, candidates must pay a filing fee that is 2% of the minimum annual salary for the office sought in effect for the year in which the candidate files. The filing fee is paid to the Director of Finance for Prince William County.
Candidates who are nominated by a political party, by a method other than a primary election, such as a convention, caucus or canvass (sometimes called a "firehouse primary"), may also be required to pay a filing fee. This fee is determined by the rules of the political party and paid to the appropriate party or district committee. Candidates should contact the political party chairman for further information.
