City Council Candidate Filing

City Council Candidate Filing
Posted on 05/17/2022

New Hope holds municipal elections in even-numbered years. A local primary election is held for local offices if the number of candidates filing for office is more than twice the number of seats available (i.e., if more than four candidates file for the two council seats).

Offices on the 2022 ballot include two city council member seats. All positions are four-year terms, at-large (represent the entire city), and non-partisan. Candidates for public office must be an eligible voter in Minnesota, at least 21 years of age upon assuming office and have resided in the city 30 days prior to the General Election.

How to file
The candidate filing period is May 17-31, 2022, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at New Hope City Hall, 4401 Xylon Ave N. Offices are open until 5 p.m. on May 31. Candidates who may be absent from the state during the filing period can make arrangements to file prior to departure by calling the New Hope City Clerk at 763.531.5117.

There is a $5 filing fee or candidates may present a petition with the required number of signatures of eligible voters in lieu of the filing fee (Minnesota Statute 204B.07-204B.11).

Contact New Hope City Clerk Valerie Leone at [email protected] or 763.531.5117 with questions.
