RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - After the announcement that Mayor Steve Allender would not be running for re-election this year, several candidates have been tossing their hats into the ring to be the next Rapid City mayor.

Tuesday was the last day for people to file a petition for a spot on the ballot, and it turned out to be the largest field of mayoral hopefuls in recent years.

The official list of candidates for the 2023 municipal election is city council members Laura Armstrong and Jason Salamun. They are joined by former council member Brad Estes, Ron Weifenbach, and area businessman Josh Lyle.

The candidate elected on June 6th will take office at the July 3rd city council meeting.

The voter registration deadline is May 22nd, the same day early voting begins.
