Municipal Elections

Municipal Elections are held in odd numbered years. Municipal Elections do not occur the same year as the Federal Presidential elections. The election is non-partisan, meaning a candidate is not nominated by a party.

Mayor and Council terms are for four years.  Three City Councilmembers positions will be up for election in 2023. Candidates are at-large and elected by all voters in the city, not just one district or precinct. 

Important Dates

  • Candidate filing dates will be June 1-7 (per Utah Code). Further information regarding the Declaration for Candidacy process will be available sometime in May.
  • The Primary Election will be held by mail on August 15, 2023. (UCA 20A-1-201.5) if more than six candidates for City Council declare. 
  • The Municipal General Election will be held by mail on November 7, 2023. (UCA 20A-1-201)

Political Campaign Signs

In keeping with the intentions and purpose of Kaysville City’s Sign Regulations to promote civic beauty and order, the following is a list of standards and regulations regarding the size and placement of campaign signs. Observing the following will help maintain streetscapes that are safe, functional, and attractive to both residents and visitors in the city while still enabling you to promote yourself as a candidate for public office.

  • Signs may be placed within Kaysville City limits any time prior to the election. To avoid public nuisance issues and as a matter of courtesy, please remove campaign signs as soon as possible following the election.
  • Signs must be placed on private property only. Signs cannot be placed on State or City owned property, on freeway ramps, power poles, street signs, regulatory signs, and cannot be placed in the park strip (the public right-of-way between the curb and sidewalk or 10 ft. behind the curb if there is no sidewalk). Signs may not be erected, constructed, or maintained upon any property without the consent of the owner or person entitled to possession of the property.
  • Signs may not be located within 150 feet of a building that is serving as a polling place for the election on Election Day. (UCA 20A-3A-501) A polling place means the physical place where ballots and absentee ballots are cast, which includes the City Office Building during the period in which absentee (vote by mail) ballots may be cast there.
  • No sign may exceed 32 square feet in size.
  • Freestanding signs are permitted and may not exceed 6 feet in height (the top of the sign shall not be more than 6 feet off the ground).
  • In the General Commercial, Central Commercial, and Light Industrial zones, signs may be displayed on a building wall but may not be placed higher than the wall of the building (no signs on a roof).
  • Signs may not constitute a safety hazard, obstruct view, or create a nuisance. To promote safety and ensure property visibility for traffic, signs should be no closer than 10 ft. to a driveway and are not allowed within the “clear vision triangle”:

Upon discovery of a sign which violates the provisions listed above, the City will remove said sign and keep it in storage until 30 days after the General Election. Candidates whose signs have been removed and placed in storage will be notified periodically by Kaysville City if he or she has signs in storage. These signs may be picked up for reuse by the candidate or designated representative. Signs not retrieved within 30 days of the General Election will be disposed of.
