IMPORTANT! RESIGN TO RUN INFORMATION (99.012, F.S.)

The “resign-to-run law” essentially prohibits an elected or appointed “officer” from qualifying as a candidate for another state, district, county or municipal public office if the terms or any part of the terms overlap with each other if the person did not resign from the office the person presently holds.

Contact the Office of General Counsel regarding questions concerning Florida’s “resign-to-run” law.
