City Government

Voter Information

Answers to frequently asked questions:

-You must live within the city limits for at least thirty (30) days prior to election day and be at least eighteen (18) years of age to vote in a city election.

-If a qualified elector moves outside city limits with the intention of making the new residence their permanent home, they are no longer a city resident and cannot vote in city elections.  Having rental property or owning a business in the city does not qualify you to vote in city elections.

-If you change your name (marriage is the most common reason) or your address you must re-register to vote.

-Every elector who registers to vote is required to swear under oath or affirmation that he/she is a citizen of the United States
