UNDATED – This is going to be a big election year.  Besides the Presidential election, all of our Congressional Districts, State House and Senate seats will also be up for election. Most of our local governments will also be holding elections.

The filing period tomorrow (Tuesday) for races that have a primary election.  Filing will close on June 5th.

In St. Cloud, the filing will be open for mayor, as well as the three at-large council seats.  Those seats are currently held by Sonja Berg, George Hontos, and Jeff Goerger.  More than two people need to file for mayor, and more than six people need to file for city council in order for there to be a primary election.

In Sauk Rapids, the mayor’s seat and two city council seats will be up for election.

In Sartell, there are two council seats up for election.  They are positions currently held by council members Hennes and Cordie. If more than four people file there will be a primary.

The cities of Waite Park, St. Joseph, and St. Augusta all will have elections, but they don’t hold a primary so their filing period isn’t until later this year.

In Benton County, offices that are up for re-election  are Commissioner Districts 1,3,4, and 5.

In Stearns County, County Commissioner Districts 1,2,3 and 4 have an election.
