Local elections matter most…

Be prepared to vote where it matters most – locally.

Again, Municipal Elections in Naperville are nonpartisan. That means candidates do not run with partisan (party) labels. Candidates are independent and not chosen by a party to serve. Nonpartisan elections are held for municipal, park district and school boards that serve constituents in Naperville. 

Further, Naperville is a place where residents can meet, greet and get to know candidates who make decisions with the biggest impact on Naperville. Become familiar with elected officials up close. Click here for a listing of all public servants currently serving Naperville. Thank you.

A few campaign notes: If more than 16 candidates file for any of the the four available seats on the Naperville City Council by Dec. 21, 2022, a Primary would be held in February 2023. Also, taking out a petition packet does not necessarily mean it will be returned by that packet-picker-upper. Registered voters may sign more than one petition for City Council candidates if they live in the City of Naperville. Also, residents who live in unincorporated Naperville may not vote for City Council members.
