Run for Local Office

The midterm election may be over, but the spring municipal elections are on the horizon – and the filing period opens in a couple of weeks.

The election for local offices around the county will be held Tuesday, April 4, 2023. The first day to circulate nomination papers for these positions is Dec. 1, and the deadline to file the nomination papers with a local clerk’s office to get on the spring ballot is 5 pm on Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2023. 

If a primary election is necessary, it will be held Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2023.

To learn which seats are up for election in your municipality, contact your local clerk’s office.
