Due to public health concerns surrounding COVID-19, the May 2, 2020 General Election for the purpose of electing the offices of Mayor and City Council Places 2 and 4 was postponed to November 3, 2020. By postponing the election date, the City is preserving all candidate filings and ballot order actions that have already taken place. This postponement does not have the effect of reopening candidate filings. View Resolution 571, Postponing the May 2, 2020 Election (PDF)
