Ulysses Democratic Candidate Selection Process Changed
Ulysses Democratic Committee (UDC) voted at it's November 3rd meeting to change the way candidates for town offices are selected from a caucus system to petition-and-primary.
The petition-and-primary system, is used for all federal, state and county positions and many other towns. Potential candidates need to collect signatures on a petition from Ulysses Democrats. Currently, the number of required signatures is approximately 100. If more people submit petitions than there are vacancies, those people would face off in a primary election.
