Nomination Period Extended for the 2020 General Municipal Election

Posted on August 7, 2020


NEW DEADLINE IS  5:00 PM WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 12, 2020

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, August 12, 2020, during normal business hours (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. – Closed 12:00 – 1:00pm) by appointment only.

The filing period was extended beyond the initial August 7, 2020, 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, contact the City Clerk’s Office at 707-933-2216 or rbarr@sonomacity.org (preferred).

The General Municipal Election is November 3, 2020.  For additional information on how to apply, please visit the City Clerk’s Election Page.
