2018 Municipal Elections
Shenandoah is a General Law city with a population of approximately 3,000 people. The city is governed by an elected city council with six members - five council members and a mayor. The council members have different backgrounds and a range of experiences, but they share a common goal of achieving the best interests of the city and its residents and businesses. The Shenandoah City Council meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 7 pm.
Staggered elections are held the first Saturday in May each year. In the even years, three Council members are on the ballot; in the odd years, two Council members and the Mayor are on the ballot.
Early voting is handled by Montgomery County. During the early voting period, any registered voter in Shenandoah may vote at any open Montgomery County early polling place. On Election Day, voters may only vote in their respective precincts. For Shenandoah, Election Day voting is in the Municipal Complex Council Chambers.
