Election Changes Due to Charter Adoption
You’re not imagining things. In the past, by this point in November, we would have been gearing up for the municipal election season. As a result of the new city charter adopted in 2020-2021, however, Elkins elections–which were previously held on the first Tuesday in March of odd-numbered years–are now held on the second Tuesday in June, also in odd-numbered years.
As a result, candidate filing and related activities won’t start until February. We are fine-tuning city law to comport with the new charter and will provide precise timetables as soon as that process is complete.
