To clarify (*) – Candidates must file nominating petitions specific to seat and term length (example: CITY COUNCIL –TWO YEAR TERM). One candidate picked up City Council nominating petitions for both two and three year terms – notated by a (*) below. This is allowed and they may gather signatures on both the two and three year Council petitions. HOWEVER, they may only file for one term length. (Example: A citizen picks up City Council nominating petitions for both two and three year terms. They gather signatures on both petitions. Prior to 5pm on March 16th, they must decide whether they want to file for the two year term or the three year term. They would then file only that petition with the City Clerks Office.) Please let me know if you need further clarification on this process.
