News, Announcements, Results & 2024 Candidacy Information!

2024 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 2024 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 January 02, 2024 by 5:00 pm. They must be delivered in-person to the City Clerk's office. 

Any incumbents not seeking re-election are required to file a notification of non-candidacy no later than Friday, December 22nd, 2023. Notification of Non-Candidacy (EL-163)

For the 2024 election year the following individuals will need to seek re-election if they wish to continue in their position:

1st District - Kevin Schmidt (Wards 1 & 5)
2nd District - Scott Meverden (Wards 6 & 7)
3rd District - Casey Buhr (Wards 2 & 3)
4th District - Jake Maring (Ward 4)
Mayor - Virginia Haske

 Alderperson candidates require 20 signatures, Mayoral candidates require 50.  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.
