Welcome to the City of Coeur d’Alene’s Election Services Web site. My goal as the City Clerk is to provide basic information to anyone who is interested in the City of Coeur d’Alene’s election process.

If you cannot find an answer to your questions on this web page, please feel free to ask me any questions that you may have regarding the City’s election process. I can be reached via e-mail at, phone at 769-2231 or by fax at 769-2348

Renata McLeod, City Clerk, CMC

The upcoming City Election will be held November 2, 2021, with seats being filled on January 4, 2022.  The following seats are up for election:

Mayor: Currently held by Steve Widmyer

Council Seat 2: Currently held by Amy Evans

Council Seat 4: Currently held by Woody McEvers

Council Seat 6: Currently held by Kiki Miller

If you are interested in filling one of the above noted positions, please contact the City Clerk directly.  There are several important steps to follow, including the filing of a Campaign Treasurer appointment form before you accept or spend any money on your campaign. The formal Declaration of Candidacy is set forth in Idaho Code to be “no earlier than the 11th Monday and no later than the 9th Friday preceding the election day” (I. C. 50-410).  However, campaigning can begin once the Treasurer appointment form has been filed.  More information will be posted to this site as it becomes available.
