Nomination papers for this year's general election in American Samoa will be available next month at the Election Office.

Voters will go to the polls to elect the Delegate to the U.S. House and members of the American Samoa House of Representatives.

Chief Election Office Soliai Tuipine Fuimaono says that in preparation for the November general election, candidates for public office may pick up nomination papers and petitions beginning July 13.

So far only two people have announced their plans to run for the congressional seat.
