St. Louis Will Have Three Elections in 35 Days
St. Louis will have three special election dates this summer to fill vacancies on the Board of Aldermen: July 19 for Ward 11, August 2 for Ward 21, and August 23 for Aldermanic President and Ward 22.
The 11th Ward seat was vacated by Sarah Wood Martin in April after voters adopted a conflict-of-interest policy.
Ward 21 Alderman John Collins-Muhammad resigned in May, one month before being indicted.
Ward 22 Alderman Jeffrey Boyd and Aldermanic President Lewis Reed resigned last week after being indicted.
The St. Louis City Charter requires vacancies to be filled by special election no sooner than 75 days and no later than 90 days after a vacancy occurs.
