Residents who are interested in becoming a candidate for a City Council position can pick up a candidate packet beginning Jan. 5 for the May 6, 2023, General Election from the City Secretary’s Office at City Hall, 825 W. Irving Blvd. Packets will also be available on the city’s website at CityofIrving.org/Elections.
This year, the Mayor and Council Districts 3 and 5 will be elected in the General Election. Districts 3 and 5 represent “single-member” districts, which require that the candidate live within the boundaries of the district in which they plan to run. The Mayor is an “at-large” position which will allow the candidate to reside anywhere within the city limits of the City of Irving. A candidate must be a resident of the city and their district in which they intend to run for at least 12 months immediately prior to Election Day.
The filing period is Jan. 18 through Feb. 17 and the City Secretary’s Office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, call the City Secretary’s Office at (972) 721-2493.
