Run for Office in Town of Ulysses
Do you love where you live, and have a desire to work toward a better future for all members of your community?
There are upcoming opportunities to run for seats in YOUR local Town of Ulysses government—and the Ulysses Democratic Committee has information that may be helpful!
The following seats are going to be up for election in the Town of Ulysses at the November 2021 general election, with 4-year terms beginning in January 2022:
-Town Board member (2 seats)
The Town of Ulysses is governed by a Town Board made up of five people: four regular councilpersons and one Supervisor. Members of the Town Board constitute the legislative governing body of Ulysses. They are responsible for establishing and overseeing the policies, finances, and ethics of the town government.
The Town Board meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. These regular meetings typically last between two and three hours and are open to the public. Since March, they’ve been conducted remotely, which is the plan for the duration of the pandemic.
Who is eligible?
Town Board members must be U.S. citizens 18 or older and residents of the Town of Ulysses (which includes Trumansburg Village residents).
Do I have to be a registered Democrat to run on the Democratic ticket?
No, any Ulysses resident who is eligible to vote may compete for the nomination at the Democratic Caucus for Ulysses. It also may be helpful to attend Ulysses Town Board meetings.
For additional information about the work involved in these positions, contact the Town of Ulysses at (607) 387-5767
