Any qualified Oro Valley resident interested in running for Mayor or Town Council in the fall of 2018 may now pick up a Candidate Handbook in the Town Clerk's Office at Town Hall, 11000 N. La Cañada Drive.
Three Council seats and the Mayor’s seat will be filled in 2018, and newly-elected members will assume the duties of office at a regularly-scheduled Council meeting following the canvassing of votes cast at the General Election on November 6, 2018.
A candidate for Council must be a qualified elector at the time of election, be 18 years of age or older, and have resided in Oro Valley for at least one year preceding the election.
Filing the nomination papers and securing the required number of signatures on a nomination petition enables a resident to run as a candidate in the Primary Election, which will be held August 28, 2018. The number of signatures required is at least 345 and not more than 689.
Candidates may turn in nomination papers from 8 a.m. on April 30, 2018, to 5 p.m. on May 30, 2018.
