What is a Municipal Election?

Municipalities have governing bodies whereby the members are elected by the voters living within the municipality. Each of the 39 municipalities in Palm Beach County has a charter that stipulates the term of the office and the frequency of the elections. The Municipal Election is run by the municipality, therefore, each have their own qualifying dates and rules, pursuant to their charters and ordinances.

Voters living within the boundaries of the municipality are eligible to participate in the election for that municipality. Voters living in unincorporated Palm Beach County are not eligible to participate in municipal elections. Voters can find their municipality on their voter registration information card or by calling our office at (561) 656-6200.

 

Early Voting – There will be no Early Voting for the March Municipal Elections.

Vote-by-Mail Ballots – Municipal voters have the option to Vote-by-Mail. Requests can be made to the Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Office via e-mail, phone call, in person, or in writing. More information about voting by mail can be found on the Vote-by-Mail page.

Candidate Qualifying – The Municipal Clerk is the qualifying officer for all candidates running for municipal offices.

Campaign Financing – Any information regarding campaign contributions and expenditures will be contained within the campaign files in the office of the Municipal Clerk. These files are open to public inspection and copies of the reports may be purchased.

Polling Places – Municipalities are responsible for securing the polling places for their elections. They may or may not use the same places that are used during a countywide election. Voters will be notified by mail if the polling place being used for the municipal election is different from the polling place used during countywide elections.

Canvassing Board – Each municipality has its own Canvassing Board made up of members as outlined in its charter.

The Municipal Clerk is the Supervisor of their election. Our office is working closely with each Clerk, however, questions specific to the Municipal Election should be directed to the Municipal Clerk’s office.
