Filing period open for local offices
May 20, 2022
The filing period for state and local offices — only those that could require primary elections in August — is open through May 31. Minnesota’s primary election day is Aug. 9.
The city of Cloquet has four positions up for election in November, including the mayor and council seats for Wards 1, 2 and 3. Carlton County also has a number of positions up for election this year, including county commissioners for District 2 (Thomson Township area) and District 4 (including the Wrenshall, Carlton and Mahtowa area and parts of Barnum).
Countywide, the Carlton County sheriff is up for re-election, as is the county attorney. The Carlton Soil and Water Conservation District has two board supervisor seats open.
The filing period for local races that don’t hold primaries (e.g., school boards, townships and many of the smaller cities) runs Aug. 2-16.
