Here are some details about elections:

  • Supervisors are elected at large but must reside in one of the districts shown on the map.
  • The filing period this year opens on May 21 and closes at 5:00 p.m. on June 4.
  • Those interested in running for SWCD supervisor need to file an affidavit of candidacy and a $20 filing fee with their county elections official (usually, the county auditor).
  • SWCD candidates do not participate in primary elections and are elected at the general election which will take place November 5.
  • Write-in candidates must file a written request with the county auditor in order for the write-in votes to be counted. Contact your county elections official for more information.
  • SWCD candidate-elects need to file a Statement of Economic Interest with the Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board after beginning their term.
  • The current SWCD Supervisor Compensation/per diem maximum of $125 is referenced in the guide. MASWCD was successful in working with the legislature in 2021 to increase the rate from $75 to $125.
