City Council Candidate Filing Period

Municipal Election

New Hope holds municipal elections in even-numbered years. A local primary election is held for local offices if the number of candidates filing for office is more than twice the number of seats available (i.e., if more than two candidates file for mayor or more than four candidates file for the two council seats) to narrow the field of candidates. Offices on the 2024 ballot include the mayor and two council member seats. All positions are four-year terms, at-large (represent the entire city), and non-partisan. Candidates for public office must be eligible voters in Minnesota, at least 21 years of age upon assuming office, and have resided in the city 30 days before the General Election.

Filing Dates

The candidate filing period is May 21-June 4, 2024, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Offices are open until 5 p.m. on June 4. Candidates who may be absent from the state during the filing period can make arrangements to file prior to departure by calling the New Hope City Clerk at 763.531.5117.

Withdrawal Deadline

To remove your name from the ballot, you must withdraw by Thursday, June 6 at 5 p.m.

Filing Location

New Hope City Hall, 4401 Xylon Avenue North, New Hope, Minnesota.

Filing Fee


Candidates may present a petition with the required number of signatures of eligible voters in lieu of the filing fee (Minnesota Statute 204B.07-204B.11).
