Registration deadline for the 2017 Election will be closing June 1 at 12 Noon. Those who might be interested in running for election need to file nomination papers with the Marion County Clerk by that date/time. Due to recent changes in the local election statutes, elections will now be held in November. There is a $20.00 fee for registering.
Three seats on the council are up for election this year—Mayor and 2 councilmen, one from each ward. Those who are successfully elected will be sworn in on the second Monday of January 2018.
