Late July deadline for two city elections hopefuls

By Lisa Brody

Those seeking to run for a seat on the Bloomfield Hills or on the Birmingham City Commission or on the Baldwin Library board have until 4 p.m. on Tuesday, July 25 to submit required paperwork at the city clerk's office in each community.

There will be four open seats on the Birmingham City Commission, and three open seats on the library board in November, while in Bloomfield Hills all of the five seats on the commission are up for election.

In Birmingham, city commission and library board candidates must be registered voters and residents for at least one year before the November 7, 2023 election.

Candidates must complete the petition packet’s required paperwork and collect more than 25 but not more than 50 signatures from Birmingham registered voters. Signers must print their names with their current address and date. A signer may only sign one petition for each available seat; in this election that means a single voter can sign no more than four city commission petitions and three library board petitions.

Similar regulations, outlined in state election law, apply for those seeking election in Bloomfield Hills.
