CRESTVIEW — Okaloosa County’s Supervisor of Elections office has planned free Candidate University class sessions for 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. June 20 at 302 N. Wilson St., Crestview and 6-9 p.m. the same date at 1804 Lewis Turner Blvd., Fort Walton Beach.

Contact Bridget Richard, 689-5600 or brichard@co.okaloosa.fl.us, by June 17 to register.

Candidate University — for anyone interested in running for public office and wanting to learn about the candidate process — includes a three-hour curriculum focused on fundamentals of becoming and being a candidate.

Participants are introduced to each step involved in the process: pre-filing, collecting petitions and qualifying.

Campaign pitfalls — audits, recounts and contest of elections — also will be discussed.

All participants will receive a certificate upon completing the program.
