City of Piqua Election Process Information


Piqua is served by five commissioners representing the five wards. View our Interactive Ward Map. This map will allow users to zoom in, search for their address, and click on the parcel to confirm their ward and commissioner. The box adjacent to "Wards" will need to be checked on the right side of the screen under "Layer List" for the ward layer to appear.

Each Commissioner must live within the ward that he/she represents. Any person eligible to the commission may be placed in nomination by a petition filed in his behalf with the election authorities and signed by not less than 50 nor more than 100 electors of his ward, as a candidate for ward commissioner.

The election of commissioners is city-wide with the entire city electing all commissioners and is nonpartisan. Elected Commissioners serve a term of four years. City Commissioner elections are held in November in odd-numbered years. The election of commissioners is staggered so that all seats are not contested at the same time. Ward 3 and Ward 4 will be contested in 2013, 2017, etc. Ward 1, Ward 2, and Ward 5 will be contested in 2011, 2015, etc.


The Mayor of Piqua is also known as the President of the Commission. They must be one of the five commissioners. The Mayor is appointed by a vote of the five commissioners. The mayor serves a two-year term.

For more detailed information about the election of Commissioners and the Mayor, please see the City of Piqua Charter.
