New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner has set the filing period for the 2020 presidential primary. The sign-up window is Oct. 30 to Nov. 15.
During that period, candidates or their representatives sign paperwork in Gardiner's office and pay $1,000 to get on the ballot. The office won’t be open on Nov. 11, Veterans Day.
Gardner has not yet set a date for the primaries, but barring attempts by other states to leap ahead, he's expected to pick Feb. 11, eight days after the Iowa caucuses.
