How do I run for city council?

If you’re thinking of running for city council, you should first pick up a 2021 City Election Candidate Packet from the Morgantown City Clerk’s office. The Candidate Packets are available beginning Jan. 4, 2021 and tell you everything you need to know about running for office.

To run for city council, a nominating petition (found in the candidate packet) must be signed by 75 registered voters of the ward in which you reside. It is recommended that you try to obtain more than the required 75 signatures due to possible duplicate signatures. Once the signatures have been collected, the nominating form should be submitted to the Morgantown City Clerk’s office along with a Certificate of Announcement no later than Feb. 8, 2021.
