About this Election


City Council elections are nonpartisan. In 2017 three ward seats and the Mayor's seat are on the ballot. To run for a ward seat  you must live in the ward and be a registered voter.


If there are more than two candidates for a seat, that race will be on the primary ballot. The primary narrows the field to two candidates for the General Election. If there no more than two candidates for a seat, that race is only on the General Election ballot. 


All ward seats are elected city-wide (everybody gets to vote for all three ward seats).


Filing is July 7 to July 21.

The primary election is October 10.

The General Election is November 7.
