Midland City Council Nominating Petitions Available

February 7, 2020 – Persons who are interested in running as a candidate in the 2020 Midland City Council election this November must submit a nominating petition by Tuesday, April 21 at 4 p.m.

Midland is divided into five districts, called wards, which elect a City Council member every two years.  To qualify as a Council candidate, you must be a registered voter in the City of Midland, a resident of the City of Midland for at least one year immediately prior to the date of the election, and a resident of the ward from which you seek to be elected prior to the date of election.     

Candidates must file a nominating petition containing at least 20, but not more than 40, valid signatures of registered voters of the ward from which they seek election.  Candidates must also complete an Affidavit of Identity and Receipt of Filing. Completed nominating petitions and Affidavit of Identity must be returned to the City Clerk’s Office by 4 p.m. on April 21, 2020. 

A Statement of Organization form must also be completed at the Midland County Clerk’s Office, located at 220 W. Ellsworth Street.

If three or more nominating petitions are received for any one ward, those candidates’ names will appear on the primary election ballot on Tuesday, August 4, 2020 for that ward only. The two persons receiving the highest number of votes cast in the August Primary Election will be placed on the November 3, 2020 ballot for their ward.  The person receiving the highest number of votes in the November election will be declared Council member for that ward. 

Members of the 2020-2022 Midland City Council will be sworn into office on Monday, November 9 for a two-year term.

Petition forms, Affidavit of Identity, and 2020 City Council Election information is available at the Midland City Clerk’s Office, 333 W. Ellsworth Street, Midland. For questions or more information about nominating petitions or the election process, contact the Midland City Clerk’s Office at 989-837-3310.
