The City would like to remind everyone that there is still time to file an application for candidacy on the Special Election Ballot. As designated by the Election Order passed and subsequently posted on the City website, the deadline to file an application for candidacy on the Special Election Ballot is March 6, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. The deadline to withdraw from the Special Election Ballot is March 10, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. Write-in designations for any election all share the same deadline of February 21, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. per state statute, therefore the City will no longer accept write-in declarations of candidacy. The City has recently been made aware of a discrepancy regarding this deadline date on some written materials pertaining to this election, and hopes to immediately clarify this discrepancy. The due dates for candidacy applications are all controlled by statute and the City is unable to make any waivers, exemptions, or altercations to these dates. Application packets are available at City Hall for this ballot.
