City Election 2019

Candidates for 2019 Spring Hill Election

The Spring Hill Board of Mayor and Aldermen (BOMA) is made up of an elected mayor and eight elected aldermen represented by four city wards. Each of the four wards are represented by two aldermen. The April 11, 2019, City of Spring Hill Municipal Election will include one of each of the four ward alderman seats on the ballot as alderman elections are staggered every two years. Regardless of the ward you live in, registered voters can vote for a candidate in each of the four wards.
