CITY OF NEWPORT
CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATE INFORMATION PACKETS AVAILABLE NOW
Newport citizens will be electing a Mayor and three Councilors in the general election on November 4, this year.. All positions are at-large which means that the candidates can live in any area of the city, but once elected, represent all citizens. Newport has no districts or wards.
The three Council positions are elected based on the three candidates receiving the highest number of votes. The Mayor is voted on separately.
Candidate information packets are available on the city’s website. The packets contain important information that potential candidates will need, including the declaration of candidacy form, a candidate’s calendar, and links to the Oregon Secretary of State’s Office for campaign finance information.
In Newport, candidates file by declaration rather than circulating a petition. The first day to submit a declaration of candidacy is June 4, 2014, and the deadline is 5:00 P.M., on August 26, 2014.
The candidate information packets are available on the city’s website:
Hard copies of this packet may be obtained by calling the city recorder at 541.574.0613, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
