Candidate Filing - April 2023 Election

A reminder that our next General Municipal Election will be held on Tuesday, April 4, 2023. Polls will be open between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. The following offices will appear on the ballot for a two-year term:

  • Municipal Judge 
  • Alderman Ward I
  • Alderman Ward II
  • Alderman Ward III

Candidates for the April Municipal Election must file, in person, a Certificate of Candidacy with the City Clerk at Des Peres City Hall, 12325 Manchester Road, Des Peres, Missouri 63131. Filing opens at 8 a.m. starting Tuesday, December 6th. The City Clerk shall determine by random drawing the order in which candidates’ names shall appear on the ballot for the first day of filing only. The closing date for election filing will be at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, December 27th. Candidates seeking office next year should be aware that in 2021 the Board of Aldermen modified its ward boundaries to reflect population changes in accordance with the 2020 Census. These new ward boundaries were incorporated into the April 2022 election cycle for the first time and will remain in place (at least) until the 2030 Census.
