2017 Riverwoods Village Election - Candidates Sought

July/August 2016

On April 4, 2017, the mayor, village clerk and three trustees will be elected to the Riverwoods Village Board. The terms of these positions are for four years.

The Caucus System in Riverwoods is a state-authorized and regulated candidate selection process designed to seek out, select and support individuals who will agree to run for and, if elected, serve in positions on the village government.

Persons wishing to be considered for selection as a nominee of the Riverwoods Caucus Party may obtain an application beginning October 7, 2016, at the Village Hall or by email request (include your name and email address). The application includes a questionnaire covering a range of issues facing the Village and is designed to assist the Caucus Nominating Committee in evaluating applicants. Completed applications must be returned no later than October 28, 2016.

A candidate must fulfill the following requirements:

  • Be a US Citizen and a resident of Riverwoods
  • Reside in Riverwoods at least one year prior to the election date
  • Be registered to vote in Riverwoods
  • Be current with all municipal taxes
  • Not be a convicted felon

The Caucus Nominating Committee will interview candidates on November 12, 2016. Any registered voter may request an interview even if no application has been led. Attendance at these interviews is open to all Riverwoods residents.

On December 5, 2016 at 7:30pm in the Riverwoods Village Hall, the Riverwoods Caucus Party will elect its candidates from among the Nominating Committee selections and any other candidates who apply. All residents registered to vote in Riverwoods are encouraged to attend this meeting and participate in the selection process. For further information, contact the Caucus Party at
