To file for municipal office, a candidate must:

  • Be 21 years old by Election Day.
  • Be a registered voter of the municipality at the time they file for office. If not already registered, they can register at the time they file their notice of candidacy.
  • Reside within the district or ward for an office that is elected by district or ward.
  • File a Municipal Notice of Candidacy (Fillable PDF) with their county board of elections and pay a filing fee set by the municipality (or submit a petition in lieu of paying the fee). See 2023-2024 Fact Sheet for Candidate Petition in Lieu of a Filing Fee.
  • File an organizational report for the candidate committee with the county board of elections within 10 days of filing a notice of candidacy or within 10 days of organizing the candidate committee, whichever occurs first, and comply with all other campaign finance requirements.
  • For partisan elections, be affiliated with the same political party in which he or she intends to file for at least 90 days prior to the filing date.
  • Disclose any felony convictions. A felony conviction does not preclude holding elective office if the candidate has completed their felony sentence.
  • A person whose name appeared on the ballot in a partisan primary election is not eligible to have their name placed on the general municipal election ballot as an unaffiliated candidate for the same office in that year.

Candidates for boards of education and sanitary district boards must be at least 21 years old by Election Day, reside within the district of the office they seek, and pay a filing fee of 1% of the annual salary for the office sought.

Prospective candidates with questions about the filing process should contact their county board of elections.
