On April 2, 2018, the Mesa City Council adopted Resolution 11103 calling a Primary Election for August 28, 2018. This resolution outlines the purpose of the elections, designates the deadline for voter registration and establishes the times that polls will be open.

The Primary election ballot will include candidates for Councilmember in Districts 345, and 6.

The successful candidate for District 3 will take office following Council’s adoption of the canvass of election.

The successful candidates for Districts 4, 5, and 6 will take office on or after the first Monday in January 2019.

Any Mesa resident that is seeking to become a candidate at the 2018 Primary Election and to have his/her name printed on the official ballot must file with the City Clerk's Office, not less than 90 days nor more than 120 days before the Primary Election, (April 30, 2018 through May 30, 2018), a nomination paper, qualified nomination petitions and a financial disclosure statement covering the previous 12-month period. 

Candidate packets containing the necessary paperwork are available at the City Clerk's Office, 20 E. Main Street, Suite 150. 

In accordance with the City Charter, if a candidate for District Councilmember receives at the Primary Election the number of votes constituting a majority of all the valid ballots cast for the office of Councilmember in that District, that candidate will be declared elected without running at the General Election.
