The nomination period for Winnipeg’s upcoming municipal election begins Wednesday, the city said.
Mayoral candidates need at least 250 signatures from voters whose names appear on the voters list, while council and trustee candidates need at least 25 signatures from voters in the ward where they’re seeking election.
Candidates are required to submit their nomination papers in person — and show valid identification proving their name and current address — at the Susan A. Thompson Building prior to the deadline of 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
If a candidate wants to withdraw their nomination, they have until 4:30 p.m. the day after the deadline.
At 6 p.m. on Sept. 21, election officials will hold a random draw to determine the order of the candidates’ names on the ballot.
