Town Council elections are held in the fall election cycle of even-numbered years, with the next Primary Election scheduled for August 2, 2022. If all candidates receive a majority vote at the Primary Election, no General Election for candidates is required.
Complete packets for the 2022 Primary Election are now available in the Town Clerk's Office, or by visiting here. The first step in running for Mayor or Councilmember is to file a Statement of Interest. After this step is completed petitions may be circulated to accumulate a minimum of 324 and maximum of 647 signatures. These petitions, along with a Nonpartisan Nomination Paper/Declaration of Qualification and Financial Disclosure Statement, must be filed in the Town Clerk's Office between March 5, 2022 and April 4, 2022.
