Nomination Period Open for City Council and Board of Education

Jul. 16th through
Aug. 10th

The City of Piedmont will hold its General Municipal Election on November 6, 2018. The nomination period for the three vacancies on the Piedmont City Council and two vacancies on the Board of Education opens on Monday, July 16th. The deadline for submitting completed paperwork is Friday, August 10th at 5:00 p.m. There is no cost to candidates to file for election.

The City Council and Board of Education are Piedmont’s two elected bodies and guide the operation of City government and the Piedmont Unified School District respectively.

The City publishes the Guide to Nomination and Candidacy, which provides details about the nomination and candidacy process which prospective candidates should find useful.

The California Elections Code requires that nomination papers be issued in person to the prospective candidate at City Hall. It is strongly recommended that residents wishing to take out or return candidate paperwork set an appointment with the City Clerk. This ensures prompt service for the candidate and allows the Clerk to devote full attention to the process. Residents without appointments will be seen on a time available basis and may be subject to interruption.

Residents with questions about the process or wishing to make an appointment can call the City Clerk’s office at (510) 420-3040.
