St. Louis (KSDK) - A Special Election has been scheduled to replace Kacie Starr Triplett, who resigned earlier this month.
This seat will be filled in the same way other aldermanic seats that are up for election in the March/April Municipal Elections.
Candidates who wish to run for the Ward 6 seat vacated by Triplett will run in the March 5, 2013 Primary Municipal Election. Filing to run on a party ticket opens Monday, November 26, 2012 at 8 a.m. and closes Friday, January 4, 2013 at 5 p.m.
Anyone who would like to run as an independent candidate has until 5 p.m. on Monday, February 11, 2013 to file a petition containing names of registered voters in the ward that equal two percent of the voters in the ward who voted in the April 2009 General Municipal Election. Those candidates will then only run in the April 2, 2013 General Municipal Election.
