IE Political Candidates Can File To Run For Office Starting Today

As the 2024 election season approaches, prospective candidates in California's Inland Empire are gearing up for a pivotal political showdown. Beginning Monday, November 13, the political landscape in both Riverside and San Bernardino counties will enter a new phase as individuals seeking public office can start the official process of candidacy for the March 5 Presidential Primary Election.

This critical period marks the commencement of the nomination process, where candidates are required to gather and submit their nomination papers to county officials by the deadline of Friday, December 8, in both counties.

The upcoming ballot in March is set to feature a range of significant offices, including the highly anticipated race for the United States Senate seat, previously held by the late Senator Dianne Feinstein. Additionally, voters will decide on every seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, as well as numerous state legislative seats, including those in the Assembly and state Senate. Local governance positions, such as county supervisor roles, judgeships, and other key offices, are also up for election.

Eligibility for candidacy is contingent upon being a registered voter within the district or area the candidate intends to represent. Certain positions may have additional qualifications or restrictions.

Individuals aiming to contest for city council positions are required to register their candidacy at the city clerk’s office in their respective cities.

Residents of Riverside County who wish to pursue a public office can acquire the necessary documentation from the Registrar of Voters office, located at 2720 Gateway Drive, Riverside. For further details, they can contact the office at 951-486-7200 or visit the website VoteInfo.net.

Similarly, residents in San Bernardino County should visit their county registrar’s office at 777 E. Rialto Ave., San Bernardino, for candidacy information. They can also call 909-387-8300 or explore SBCountyElections.com for more guidance.

It is important to note that both registrars' offices will be closed on November 23 and 24 in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday, a brief pause in what promises to be a dynamic and closely watched election cycle.

Fatal Police Shooting in Fontana Raises Questions

A fatal police shooting in Fontana on Saturday night has sparked an investigation and raised questions about the circumstances leading up to the incident. According to the Fontana Police Department, officers responded to a call around 7:30 p.m. on the 7100 block of Big Sur Street, where a man was reportedly threatening family members.

Upon arrival, an encounter between an officer and the suspect escalated, resulting in the officer-involved shooting. The man was pronounced dead at the scene, as confirmed by the police in a subsequent news release.

The identity of the man, as well as crucial details such as whether he was armed at the time of the shooting, remain undisclosed. The incident has left a gap in understanding the full narrative of what transpired during the confrontation.

In a related development, an officer sustained injuries during the incident and was hospitalized. The nature of the injuries and how they were incurred have not been clarified. The officer has since been released from the hospital.

The investigation into the shooting has been taken over by the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department and the California Department of Justice. This involvement is notable, as the state Department of Justice typically steps in for investigations involving fatal police shootings of unarmed suspects, though it has not been confirmed if the deceased was armed.

The Fontana Police Department has also announced its intention to conduct an internal review of the shooting. This incident adds to the ongoing national discourse on police use of force and the mechanisms of accountability and transparency in such cases.
