Candidate packets for the 2017 City of Huntsville General Election are available through the office of the City Secretary at City Hall, 1212 Avenue M, or on the City web site at huntsvilletx.gov/Elections or huntsvilletx.gov/Elecciones.

The City Council seats for a Mayor At-large Position and Ward Councilmembers 1-4 will be on the November 7, 2017 general election ballot. Filing for the positions will be from July 22, 2017 to August 21, 2017, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., in the office of the City Secretary.

The City of Huntsville application fee is one dollar in cash, per City Charter mandate. City Secretary Lee Woodward acknowledged members of the public may have questions about the responsibilities of Councilmembers.

City Secretary Lee Woodward said, her “office provides the candidate packets, which include general information, a brief of the state election calendar, and references for guidelines and statutes.” She said, “Anyone is welcome to learn more about the duties of Councilmembers and how the election process is conducted, even if they have no desire to run for office. The steps to becoming, and the obligations of, an elected Councilmember are many and varied.”
