Fargo Women Running for Office in 2022

By Laura Caroon
Fargo, ND, Women running for office

For the nation, 2022 is a midterm election year, and for Fargo, it’s a big year in terms of local elections. There are two commission seats, one mayoral seat, five seats on school board, three on park board, and a number of seats in house and senate up for grabs. And as folks have announced their candidacies, it’s been encouraging to see the number of women running for seats!

Here’s a quick rundown of the women you’ll see on your ballot in June if you’re a Fargo resident. We encourage you to learn more about each candidate so you feel confident in your picks at the polls and choose the candidates that you believe will be the best representatives for your city.

You can also listen to candidate forums put on by the League of Women Voters and the FMWF Chamber as the season progresses.

Happy voting!
