Candidates interested in running for the Stevens Point City Council in the spring 2024 election can begin circulating nomination papers on Friday, Dec.1.

Even-numbers districts in Stevens Point are the only city offices on the April ballot. Additional information on city districts can be found here.

As of Nov. 30, three members of the Council have filed non-candidacy paperwork indicating they will not be running for another term. David Shorr from District 2 announced in October that he would not seek a fifth term, followed by David Plaisance from District 6.

Now, Keely Fishler of District 10 has announced that she will not seek another term. Fishler has been in her seat since 2019.

Interested candidates must be age 18 or older, live in their aldermanic district, and have no criminal record. Candidates must also collect 20-40 signatures on their nomination paperwork from the district in which they run.

Nomination paperwork can be picked up from the Stevens Point City Clerk’s office, 1515 Strongs Ave., or online at the Wisconsin Elections Commission.

The spring election will be held on April 2, 2024. If necessary, a primary election will be held on February 20.
