Becoming a Candidate

Municipal elections are held every two year on the odd numbered years. Municipal candidates are nominated by the Republican Town Committee in early July of each election year. Prior to nominations, a Candidate Subcommittee reviews applications of citizens who are interested in running for office and makes their recommendations to the Republican Town Committee as a whole.

If you would like to run for office but are unsure as to where you would like to serve please see our Local Government page for more information about each elected office.

If you are interested in running for office you may either fill out the candidate questionnaire below, or if you would like to complete a printed version of the questionnaire you may download a candidate application and email it to mail the completed form to:
