2013 City of Yuma Elections

Posted:

YUMA – (KSWT News 13) - The City of Yuma will hold primary and general elections in 2013. Up for grabs are five seats: city mayor, three city council seats and municipal judge.

Al Krieger is currently the city's mayor. The three city council seats up for election are the ones held by Paul Johnson, Jerry Stuart and Bobbi Lewis.

"We don't know who is running yet or not. We've only had the announcement that candidate packs are available for pickup for a couple of days now," says Dave Nash, Public Information Officer for the City of Yuma.

Nomination packets for those wanting to run are available from the City Clerk's office, located on the first floor of Yuma City Hall on Third Street between First and Madison Avenues.

"The best thing to do is to go to the City Clerk's office because they'll give you a 13-page manual and then a package for petitions. The manual is also available online," explains Nash.

Nash recommends people interested in running pick up a packet at the city clerk's office if they have any questions about the process of becoming a candidate. All five positions are for four-year terms, beginning on January 1, 2014.

The primary election will take place on August 27th.  The general election will be held on November 5th.

The first day for candidates to file nomination papers and other nomination forms is April 29th. The deadline to file nomination paperwork is May 29th (5pm).  That's when we'll know, officially, who's in the running.
