April Election filing date changes

Filing for the April 5, 2022, General Municipal Election opens Dec. 7, and the last day to file is Dec. 28. These changes are due to legislation passed in August.

In years past, candidates had 26 days in which to file, while the new legislation now only allows 16 days for filing.
