Extension of Candidate Filing Period for the City of Sonoma 2018 General Municipal Election

Posted on August 10, 2018


The filing period for non-incumbents for the office of Council Member in the City of Sonoma has been extended. Interested residents must file nomination papers for the General Municipal Election by the new deadline, Aug. 15, 2018, during normal business hours (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. – Closed 12:00 – 1:00pm).

The filing period was extended beyond the initial Aug. 10, 2018, deadline because one incumbent failed to file nomination papers. The filing period for incumbents is now closed. Any Sonoma resident age 18 or older who is registered to vote, eligible to take the oath of office, and unless otherwise specifically provided, qualified to vote for the office, can file nomination papers. To file, visit the City Clerk’s Office, located on the 2nd floor of Sonoma City Hall, No. 1 The Plaza. For more information, contact the City Clerk’s Office at 707-933-2216.

The General Municipal Election is Nov. 6. for election information please visit the City Clerk’s Election Page.
