SALINAS, Calif. -

Planning to run for office in November? Time's running out to file the paperwork.

The Monterey County Office of Elections says Friday at 5 p.m. is the deadline for all candidates to file their paperwork for the Nov. 4 election. The same deadline applies to place a measure on the November ballot.

If an incumbent for an office does not file by 5 p.m. on August 8, the candidate filing period for that office will automatically be extended until 5 p.m. on Aug. 13. The incumbent will not be eligible to file during the extension.

The 10-day public examination period for documents filed is from 5 p.m. on Aug. 8 to 5 p.m. on Aug. 18.
