This year, all city council seats and the mayor are up for election. On the ballot on November 7, voters will elect a mayor and six councilmembers—one for each of the four districts, one at large and another two-year term at-large seat.
“Our records show this is the first time in Bloomington’s history that the entire seven-person council has been on the ballot at the same time,” City Clerk Christina Scipioni said.
Due to redistricting that occurred in 2022, all four council district seats will be on the ballot. The candidates elected to Districts 1 and 2 will serve two-year terms. Candidates elected to Districts 3 and 4 will serve four-year terms. The special election for councilmember at-large is due to the vacancy created when former City Councilmember Nathan Coulter was elected to the state legislature. There will also be three ballot questions about local option sales tax.
Three Bloomington school board members are also up for election. Visit blm.mn/vote for more information.
