The first day of filing for political office ended at the State Capitol Wednesday and saw more people than any opening day in at least 16 years.
419 people filed for federal, state and local positions.
At exactly 8:00, State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax makes the announcement.
“May I have your attention please. The 2014 candidate filing period is now open.”
The first man to file, Max Wolfley, came to the Capitol Tuesday afternoon at 4:30 to be first in line to run for the Republican ticket for House District 95.
