The filing period officially opened Monday with at least nine residents pulling nomination papers for seats on the Santa Monica City Council, Santa Monica Rent Control Board and Santa Monica Community College District Board of Trustees.
More were expected to grab packets after a training session ended after City Hall closed at 5:30 p.m., but their names were not immediately available, according to the City Clerk's office.
The filing period closes Aug. 10.
