Elections – November 2015 and beyond!

Patti Garcia, Town Clerk/Assistant to the Town Manager
For Windsor Now

Voting in an election is a great opportunity for your voice to be heard. There are a couple of elections coming up in which Windsor residents can vote — Nov. 3, which is a county coordinated election, and the municipal election in April 2016 for the Mayoral seat and board members for Districts 1, 3 and 5.

The Nov. 3 election is considered an "off-year" election and is usually held at the municipal level for citizen initiatives, local public office elections, as well as featuring special elections to fill vacancies in federal, state and local offices. This election will be administrated by your County Clerk.

The April 5, 2016 municipal election will be administrated by the town of Windsor. For those interested in running for mayor or in serving as a representative for District 1, 3 or 5, nomination information will be available on the Town's website at http://www.windsorgov.com on Dec. 1.

Additionally, no person who has been convicted of a felony is eligible and a person cannot be a candidate for both mayor and board member at the same election.
