HOW TO RUN FOR OFFICE
To be eligible to run for office, you must be a resident of the incorporated Village of Tequesta and a registered voter of Palm Beach County. When a resident decides to seek office, they should schedule an appointment with the Village Clerk to review the “Candidate Election Handbook.” During this meeting, a comprehensive explanation of the process is provided, required forms and election laws reviewed, and important dates and deadlines are discussed. The Candidate Election Handbook will be available for review beginning Thursday, September 1, 2022. All candidates will need to set aside approximately one hour to review the handbook with the Clerk.
The next annual qualifying period will begin at noon on November 1st through November 15th at noon. The next municipal election is March 14, 2023. Due to the Election Code, these dates and times are strictly enforced and are not flexible.

CHARTER REFERENDUM 2023
In August 2021, Council established a Charter Review Board (CRB) consisting of five residents who submitted applications of interest to serve. The mission of the CRB was to review the Village’s Charter, as it had not been reviewed in over ten years, and make Charter Amendment recommendations to Council. The CRB met numerous times over five months reviewing in microscopic detail every aspect and potential option to the items contained within the Village’s Charter.
During the July 14, 2022 Council Meeting, Council approved the CRB’s recommended changes. However, prior to these changes taking place, a Charter Referendum has to go before the Village electors for final approval.
