Eligible electors who are interested in running for Mayor, Regional Chair, Regional and Town Councillor, and School Board Trustees must follow the nomination process and file a nomination paper at Milton Town Hall.

Those elected for Milton’s local government make important decisions that impact the daily life of all residents. They contribute to the community’s vision, strategic direction and values. This includes changes and additions to services that impact the community, such as transit, parks, roads, sports and recreation programs and fire services. School Board Trustees are elected to make decisions about budgets and facilities in local schools.
