Jackson voters will go to the polls this year to decide the next Mayor and who will sit on the City Council. The City Clerk’s Office has verified paperwork submitted by candidates for the 2021 City elections. The following candidates will appear on ballots: 

Ward 1 

  • Dena Morgan
  • Arlene Robinson 

Ward 3

  • Caleb Blondke
  • Angelita Velasco Gunn  

Ward 5

  • Karen Bunnell 

Mayor

  • Jeromy Alexander
  • Daniel Mahoney
  • Laura Dwyer Schlecte
  • John Wilson

There will be no primary election for the races in Wards 1, 3 and 5 because only two or less candidates filed. These City Council seats will be decided in the Tuesday, Nov. 2 election. A Citywide primary for Mayor will be held on Tuesday, Aug 3. The deadline to register as a write-in candidate for the August primary is Friday, July 23 at 4 p.m.  The top two candidates with the most votes will advance to the Nov. election. 

Council seats in Wards 2, 4 and 6 are not up for election until 2023. Councilmembers serve four year terms and the Mayor serves a two year term. City of Jackson elections are held on odd-numbered years and are non-partisan.  Learn more about Jackson elections on the Election Division page.
