Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

If you're looking to get on the primary election ballot, keep in mind today's your last day to file, so you'd better hop to. And if you're only curious about who's already filed, well, the Dallas County Democratic Party has its list available on the left side of the page, while the Dallas County Republican Party has posted its list a little further to the right. In related news, only because he has the best name on either list so far: Good luck, Stretch! --Robert Wilonsky

Update: Looks like former Dallas County Sheriff Jim Bowles turned in his paperwork ... and just in time! Because the race for Dallas County Sheriff wasn't interesting enough, apparently.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
