Is the Town Clerk’s office responsible for ensuring my forms are correct?

While the Town Clerk is the Qualifying (Filing) Officer for our municipality, pursuant to F.S. 99.061(7)(c), the filing officer performs only a ministerial function in reviewing qualifying papers.  Therefore, the Town Clerk may only review the qualifying papers to determine whether all items required have been properly filed and whether each item is complete on its face, but may not determine whether the contents of the qualifying papers are accurate.
