Nomination Process

During the open nomination period, each interested candidate meets with the Town Clerk and/or Deputy Town Clerk. Each candidate is provided a 2020 Candidate’s Filing Guide containing useful information and regulations regarding the election process and campaign. Candidates also receive important documents to be completed and filed by the end of the nomination period. These documents include, but are not limited to the Nomination Petition, Ballot Designation Worksheet, Candidate’s Statement of Qualifications Form, Code of Fair Campaign Practices and FPPC Forms (mandated by the Fair Political Practices Commission). Note that the Town of Windsor is transitioning from at-large elections to a district-based election system. Since this is the first time when the offices of the Mayor and Town Councilmember in District 3 are up for election, there are no incumbents. Therefore, there was no extension of the nomination period.
