Nomination Papers Available for Bath City Council At Large Seat

The City of Bath is scheduled to hold a Special Election on Tuesday, November 3, 2020, to fill a vacancy for City Councilor At Large (term to expire December 2022). 

Nomination papers will be available on Friday, September 4, 2020 through Tuesday, September 22, 2020 at the City Clerk’s Office, 55 Front Street, Bath. The nomination papers can be filed with the City Clerk between Tuesday, September 8, at 8:30 a.m. and Tuesday, September 22, at 4:30 p.m.

City Councilor At Large (term to expire December 2022) was originally opened for nominations during the regular nomination period (June 30-August 18), but there was a discrepancy in the nomination papers. Residents seeking nomination for that position were provided paperwork that indicated the resident was being nominated for City Councilor At Large for a term of three years. That position is set to expire December 2023. This error meant that there were no nominations for the City Councilor At Large (term to expire December 2022), which is a two-year term.

To rectify the error, a new nomination period was opened for City Councilor At Large (term to expire December 2022). Individuals who turned in nomination papers for the City Councilor At Large positions have been contacted, notified of the discrepancy and the new nomination period.

There are three other City Council positions open at November’s election: City Councilor Ward One (term to expire December 2023), City Councilor Ward Six (term to expire December 2023) and City Councilor At Large (term to expire December 2023). The nomination period is complete for those positions.
