Considering running for local public office in Wellesley’s March 1, 2022 election? Now’s the time!
Nomination papers are available now for candidates to take out from the Town Clerk’s office. To assist potential candidates - individuals who are curious, concerned or interested in following the direction of Wellesley’s current projects – the League of Women Voters of Wellesley held its annual “How to Run for Local Public Office” event virtually on December 1.
This program is particularly useful for those seeking office for the first time. The video can be viewed here, a detailed Road Map to Running for office and the Town of Wellesley 2022 Election Candidate Handbook which includes detailed descriptions of each office are also available. The League urges candidates to familiarize themselves thoroughly with the responsibilities of the position they seek. The LWV’s Town Government Handbook 2021, a detailed guide for Town Meeting members, is also found on the website.
Candidates must take out nomination papers in person, by appointment only, from the Town Clerk’s office. For an appointment, please email Elections@wellesleyma.gov.
