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 on their 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.
