What is a Municipal Election?

Municipalities have governing bodies whereby the members are elected by the voters living within the municipality. Each of the 39 municipalities in Palm Beach County has a charter that stipulates the term of the office and the frequency of the elections. The Municipal Election is run by the municipality, therefore, each have their own qualifying dates and rules, pursuant to their charters and ordinances. 

Voters living within the boundaries of the municipality are eligible to participate in the election for that municipality. Voters living in unincorporated Palm Beach County are not eligible to participate in municipal elections. Voters can find their municipality on their voter registration information card or by calling our office at (561) 656-6200.
