Candidate Filing Information for Coralville City Election


The Office of Mayor and two City Council positions will be on the ballot for the 2023 Coralville City election on November 7.  Coralville has five City Council members who serve overlapping four-year terms. The Mayor serves a two-year term. 

One of the council seats fills the seat of Keith Jones, who was appointed in June 2022 to fill the remainder of a term. The council seat held by appointee Jones will be filled immediately by the elected City Council candidate with the most votes once the canvass of votes is completed on November 14, 2023. The City Council candidate with the second-highest vote total and the Mayor will both take office on January 1, 2024.
