Candidates who are eyeing a run for city government can now pick up petitions to qualify for the ballot in November.
“All cities in Warren County will hold municipal elections this year in conjunction with the General Election on Nov. 8,” said election administrator Donna Smith. “McMinnville, Centertown and Viola will each elect a mayor. All will elect at least some, if not all, aldermen.”
Qualifying continues until Aug. 18 at noon. Those wishing to qualify must pick up a petition at the election office and obtain the signatures of at least 25 registered voters from the towns in which they are running.
In McMinnville, Mayor Jimmy Haley is up for election. Also on the ballot will be three of the city’s six alderman seats. This year the spots held by Jimmy Bonner, Ben Newman and Mike Neal are up for grabs.
In Centertown, the mayor’s office along with both alderman positions are up for election, while Morrison will see three alderman spots on the ballot. Viola will have its mayor, along with all five aldermen, up for election.
