South Valley city elections
If you're interested in running for a city office, it's almost time to throw your hat in the ring. The candidate filing period for potential mayors and council members is June 1-7. Because city halls are closed on weekends, candidate have just five days June 3-7 during business hours to submit a declaration of candidacy in person. If your city operates under a four-day week, confirm the deadline because it could be earlier.
General city elections are non-partisan and held in odd numbered years. The staggered terms are for four years (except when the position is for an unexpired term), with about half the seats up for election each time. Candidates must be a registered voter and a resident of the city for at least 12 months immediately prior to the election to run.
