Elections & Voting
Municipal elections are held annually on the second Tuesday in March. Councilmembers in Groups 1, 3, and 5 are elected in even years. Councilmembers in Groups 2 and 4 are elected in odd years. Municipal elections are by group, at-large, and non-partisan (no districts, no party affiliation). The candidate qualifying period is the first seven business days in January during regular business hours.
In 2020, the North Palm Beach Municipal Election will be held in conjunction with the Presidential Preference Primary on Tuesday, March 17, 2020. Qualifying to run for Council in the March 2020 election is earlier than in previous years. The candidate qualifying period for the March 2020 election opens on December 9, 2019 and closes on December 17, 2019.
Council group numbers do not indicate a geographic district.
Group numbers indicate a seat on the Council. Candidates run for a specific group, which they must select at the time of qualifying for election. All Village electors may vote for the candidate of their choice in each of the Council groups listed on the ballot (Groups 2 and 4 in odd years, Groups 1, 3, and 5 in even years). Councilmembers represent and serve all Village voters.
