August 2, 2022 Special Election to fill 21st Ward Vacancy

Special Election

The St. Louis City Election Board voted yesterday to hold a Special Election in Ward 21 on Aug. 2, 2022, to fill the vacancy created by the May 12 resignation of Alderman John Collins-Muhammad.  Because the vacancy occurred more than 180 days prior to the next General Municipal Election in 2023, Article IV, Section 5 of the City Charter requires that a Special Election be held no sooner than 75 days nor later than 90 days after the occurrence of the vacancy.  The individual elected will serve until the next General Municipal Election (April 4, 2023).
