When is the next municipal election?

The City of Kennedale contracts with Tarrant County for their General Elections, which are generally the first Saturday of each May. Registered Kennedale voters can vote at the Kennedale Community Center (in the Library) at 316 W 3rd Street, Kennedale TX, 76060. Check your current voter registration status here.

In even years, the offices of Mayor and City Council places 2 and 4 are up for election; and in odd years, City Council Places 1, 3, and 5 appear on the ballot. Those elected by a majority vote (more than 50%) are sworn into office for two-year terms. If no single candidate secures more than 50% of the vote, a run-off election will be held for that place. There are no term limits, and there is no cost to file for a place on the ballot. If you're interested in running in an upcoming election, you can get more information at www.cityofkennedale.com/election.
