SVD Absentee Voting Notice - Autumn's Journey (1/31/2023: 10:00 am)

Notification of Non-Candidacy Posting - 12/15/2022

2023 Candidacy & Nomination Paper Deadline:

We’re starting to think about elections at City Hall!  December 1st is the first day for candidates to circulate nomination papers for the 2023 Spring Election.  Ballot access documents can be found on our website in the Document Center and are also available at City Hall.  Candidacy paperwork and nomination papers are due back to me no later than 5:00 p.m. on January 3rd. 

Any incumbents not seeking re-election are required to file a notification of non-candidacy no later than Friday, December 23rd. Notification of Non-Candidacy (EL-163)

 This year the following individuals will need to seek re-election if they wish to continue in their position:

1st District - John Pabich
2nd District - Midge Swedberg
3rd District - Steve Lautenbach
4th District - Lee Dachelet

 Alderperson candidates require 20 signatures.  It is wise to obtain a couple extra signatures because once the nomination papers are turned in, they are cross referenced with any other nomination papers turned in for the same office and if there are duplicates only the set of papers that the individual signed first will count.  Also for alderperson,  signatures by residents that don’t reside within your district will be eliminated.
