Are candidates required to live in the district in which they plan to run?
Yes. Candidates will only qualify to run in the district in which they live. Having property in another district does not qualify a voter to run for commissioner in that district.

That place shall be considered the residence of a person in which that person’s habitation is fixed, and to which, whenever that person is absent that person has the intention of returning. Once a candidate is elected to the board they must maintain continuous residency in that district to remain eligible to serve on the board.
