Running for Office

In general, there are two methods to run for municipal office in Westbrook - either by receiving nomination by caucus or nomination by petition. The exception to this rule is the Portland Water District Representative position (click here for additional information on this position). 

Nomination by Caucus. Each political party may nominate a candidate for office. Parties typically hold caucuses in the summer to determine their candidates. Contact your local party chair for more information on when your party's caucus will be held. 

Nomination by Petition. A person may be nominated as a candidate by taking out petition papers and obtaining a certain number of signatures from registered voters in the City of Westbrook.
