Spring Primary Election Tuesday, February 21st

The Village of Bellevue will be holding a primary for the two Village Trustee seats up for election this spring.  Primary polling will take place on Tuesday, February 21, 2012 at the Public Safety Building /Village Hall (3100 Eaton Road).  Voters are being reminded that polling has been consolidated to this one location for the primary.  The polling site will be open from 7am to 8pm.

Brent Muller has withdrawn his candidacy.  However, due to state election law his name will appear on the primary ballot.  Click the following link to view a draft primary ballot.
