All ten Columbia villages will be holding elections later this spring to elect new village board members. This is a great opportunity for anybody looking to get more involved in their neighborhood and help make their community a better place to live! In addition to electing new village boards, six villages listed will be electing a single representative to serve on the Columbia Association Board of Directors.
Each village center has slightly different rules, but generally, interested individuals must file their candidacy by a specified deadline during the second week of March by submitting a 150 word statement to their village board manager. All elections will be held April 25, 2020.
