Several Monticello city seats up for election

     Five city government seats in Monticello will be on the Nov. 2, 2021 election ballot:

     • Mayor, a four-year term

     • City Council At-large, a four-year term

     • City Council Ward 2, a four-year term

     • City Council Ward 4, a four-year term

     • City Council Ward 1, two years to finish out the current term (due to an appointment)

     Each candidate must file an affidavit of candidacy and nomination petitions or non-party political convention certificate. For each of the seats, a minimum of 25 signatures are needed on a petition to qualify to get the candidate’s name on the ballot. Collecting more signatures than what you need is advised.

     Candidates running for at-large seats may collect signatures from anywhere in the city. Candidates running for seats that can be voted for only by voters in a ward must collect all signatures within the ward. Petition signers must be eligible electors of the city and ward.

     If an office appears on the ballot to fill a vacancy, candidates filing for that office must check the box “To Fill Vacancy” on their nomination papers. This will distinguish the vacancy from other seats in the city that have terms that end at a later date.

     An affidavit of candidacy must be filled out by the candidate and filed with the County Auditor between Aug. 23 and Sept. 6.

     Nomination petitions must be filed with the County Auditor at the same time as the affidavit of candidacy.

     Election information and the candidate materials are available at Election result information will also be available on this website the night of the election.
