n Monday, Feb. 13 — Nominations petitions may be obtained from the Town Clerk and distributed for signatures. Ten signatures are required to make it on the ballot, and they must be obtained from registered Silverton voters. A petition signer may only sign as many petitions as there are vacant seats (four).
n Friday, March 2 — Deadline to return nomination petitions to the Town Clerk.
n Monday, March 5 — Voter registration deadline. Silverton residents who are not yet registered may register at the County Clerk’s office.
n March 12-16 — Mail-ballot packets will be mailed to all registered voters, and will also be available for pickup at Town Hall.
