City Elections: Candidate Filing

Anyone eligible to hold office and desiring to appear on the ballot must file a Certificate of Announcement of Candidacy (W. Va. Secretary of State Official Form C-1 MUNI), accompanied by the appropriate filing fee.

Filing fees:

  • Mayor: $50
  • Council: $25

The 2021 filing period is November 2-November 20.

To avoid errors and delays, filing in person is highly recommended. To file in person, you must make an appointment with the city clerk. (Contact information is at the bottom of this page.)

Before filing, you may wish to review our online resources about the authority, responsibility, and other aspects of the job of Elkins mayor or city councilor.
