Trustees are elected during municipal elections every four years and are directly accountable to the community. The next municipal election is October 24. The new Board of Trustees will serve from November 15, 2022 to November 14, 2026. 

Individuals interested in running for trustee should submit their nomination to the lead municipal office, which is the municipality with the higher population of electors. Nominations may be submitted until August 19, 2022. Visit our election page for more information on how to run, who is eligible to run and the process.
