BENTON – Benton County residents interested in running for their City Council or School Board can soon begin filing papers to place their name on the November 5 ballot.
This is the first year in Iowa that the City and School elections have been combined to be conducted on the same day.
Candidates will need to file a nomination petition and an affidavit of candidacy to get their name on the ballot. Those documents need to be filed with the city clerk for a seat with the city or with the school secretary for a seat on the school board.
Candidates can begin filing those papers with those officials on August 26. The petitions are due to those officials before 5 p.m. on September 19.
Also new this year is a requirement on nomination papers that the papers include information about the person who is distributing the nomination papers. That information should include the person’s name, signature, address and phone number.
