The 2014 election season has officially begun with the kickoff of the filing period for state and federal offices in Arkansas.

Officials marked the start of the weeklong filing period Monday as dozens of candidates for statewide, congressional and legislative office planned to file paperwork to appear on the ballot this year.

Republican Sen. Cecile Bledsoe of Rogers, who is running for re-election, was the first to file paperwork Monday.

Each of the state's seven constitutional offices is on the ballot, along with all 100 House seats, half the state Senate, Arkansas' four U.S. House seats and one U.S. Senate seat. The governor's race is at the top of the ticket, with incumbent Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe term-limited and unable to run for re-election.

Filing period ends March 3.
