Nominating Packets Available for 2021 City Commission, BLP Seats

The Marquette City Clerk’s office is now accepting nominating petitions for the City elective offices to be filled this year. There will be two vacancies on the Marquette Board of Light and Power and two vacancies on the Marquette City Commission.

Packets containing nominating petition forms, the required certificates and information sheets are available from the City Clerk’s Office. Presently, City Hall is closed to the public, but these materials are available for pick-up in person. In order to obtain nominating forms and related documents, residents are asked to contact the City Clerk’s Office by telephone at 225-8667 to schedule a time to pick up the necessary materials.

The deadline for filing nominating petitions is 4 p.m. on Tuesday, April 20. At the time they are submitted, completed packets must be accompanied by either the signatures of at least 25 registered City electors or by a $100 nonrefundable fee. To be eligible to run for office in the City of Marquette, candidates must also have been residents of the City for at least one year and may not be in debt to the City.

If a sufficient number of candidates file, a primary election for the BLP and City Commission will be held on Aug. 3, 2021. Candidates moving on from the primary will then be on the Nov. 2, 2021 ballot.
