2022 Municipal Election Candidates: Book before you file!

Monday, May 2 may be the last day to file income tax returns in Canada – but it’s the first day candidates can submit their nomination papers for the 2022 Municipal and School Board elections.

If you’re planning to run for a seat and have your papers ready to file, book an appointment, say City staff.

“By scheduling a 30-minute meeting, you will avoid wait times and delays, which may occur if we have many people arriving at the same time,” says Janet Jaynes, Deputy Clerk at the City of Kingston. “It will also ensure that Elections Officials are available to receive your nomination when you arrive.”

The Deputy City Clerk has supported several elections and says it isn’t unusual for candidates to arrive early on that first day. “They’re excited to file, which is wonderful, but the last thing we want to see are disappointed people and line-ups,” says Jaynes.

Book your appointment now.

People interested in learning more about how to run for office, are invited to visit the City’s Candidate Information page, which contains information on eligibility criteria, how to file a nomination, campaigning, and more.

The municipal elections will be held on Monday, Oct. 24.
