2018 Mayoral-Council Election

Home > News and Events

Four council and the mayor's position(s) will be up for election in November. Three positions have four year terms and one has two years. The the mayor's position is for 2 years. Echo council members are elected at large.

Those interested in running may pick up petitions beginning May 30. Petitions are due back by August 21. The charter requires you to file a petition signed by 20 Echo city registered voters. You cannot pay a fee at the courthouse to file. You can sign only one petition per office, (i.e. one mayor petition and four council petitions). For example, if someone signs two mayor petitions, the signature will only be counted on the first filed petition.

Council members are volunteers and are NOT paid.

To run for council, you must be a registered voter living within the Echo corporate limits for at least one year prior to filing.
