Vote for the River: Candidate Survey and Pledge

Vote for the River: Candidate Survey and Pledge


Jacksonville is holding unitary elections for City Council and Mayor on on March 19, 2019.  According to the Duval County Supervisors of Election, "The first election is held with a single ballot for all voters within each electoral district, regardless of political party affiliation. Candidates appear on the ballot with party labels and campaign as party candidates. Any candidate winning a majority of votes in the primary is elected; if no candidate for a position wins a majority, the general election serves as a runoff between the top two winners, regardless of party affiliation." 

Voters need to know which candidates will make the St. Johns a priority and lead the charge to address the problems that degrade our river's health. 

As a result, St. Johns RIVERKEEPER has asked all of the candidates running for Jacksonville City Council and Mayor to complete our Candidate Survey and sign a Resiliency Pledge

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, St. Johns RIVERKEEPER does not endorse candidates. However, we will do our best to let you know where the candidates stand on key river-related issues.  Once completed surveys and signed pledges are received, we will post them on this website. 

Here's what you do leading up to the election:
