City Council and School Board Candidate Deadlines –

The City of Piedmont will hold its General Municipal Election on November 8, 2016.

The nomination period for the two vacancies on the Piedmont City Council and three vacancies on the Board of Education opens on Monday, July 18th. The deadline for submitting completed paperwork is Friday, August 12th 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. Members of these bodies may serve a maximum of 2 four-year terms.

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 at an appointment with the City Clerk. This ensures prompt service for the candidate and allows the Clerk to devote their full attention to the process. Residents without appointments will be seen on a time available basis and may be subject to interruption.

The important Guide to Nomination and Candidacy is available for residents to review online by clicking above.

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