2022 Municipal Election
If you would like to run for a seat, you need to circulate a petition and receive the necessary signatures for your ward. You may start circulating petitions on January 28, and must submit them by 5pm on February 25, 2022 to the office or have them postmarked and mailed by registered date by said time.
Signature requirements (5% of registered voters of the ward - SDCL 9-13-9):
Alderman, Ward I - 2 year term requires 29 signatures
Alderman, Ward II - 2 year term requires 20 signatures
Petitions can be obtained at the municipal office and can be printed off the SD Sec. of State's website (https://sdsos.gov/elections-voting/upcoming-elections/municipal-school-information/default.aspx). Crooks is a class two municipality. If you decide to print petitions off yourself, make sure they are self-contained (font & back).
