Date and Municipalities to vote Caltanissetta 2024 administrative elections: the date In 2019 the administrative elections in Caltanissetta were held on 28 April, a different day compared to the rest of Italy which instead went to the vote – also for the European elections and for the regional in Piedmont – at the end of May.
Even if an official communication has not yet arrived from the Region, in 2024 the hypothesis of a merger remains in the field: in this case the first round of the administrative elections in Caltanissetta would be held on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 June.
As per the regulations, the possible run-off would be held two weeks later but it remains to be seen whether the Region will opt for double voting days as recently done.
The electoral law The electoral law of administrative elections in Italy is majority-based as regards the election of the mayor, while the distribution of councilors takes place in a proportional manner.
Since Caltanissetta is a municipality with more than 15,000 inhabitants, if no candidate in the first round obtains 40% of the valid votes then a run-off will be held between the two most voted.
If there is a perfect head-to-head tie, the oldest candidate will be elected mayor.
To guarantee the formation of a solid majority and consequently substantial governability, the lists linked to the winning mayoral candidate will be allocated 60% of the seats; the remaining seats on the Council will then be assigned to the other lists in a proportional manner through the "D'Hondt method".
At the division of seats, a total of 24 councilors excluding the mayor will be elected.
All lists and groups of lists of candidates that have exceeded the threshold of 3% of valid votes will be admitted.
As regards the voting methods, in municipalities with more than 15,000 inhabitants, split voting is permitted, with the voter being able to express up to two preferences while maintaining gender equality (one man and one woman).

Five years later in the 2024 local elections the mayor announced that he will run again in search of a second consecutive mandate, with Gambino who will in all likelihood once again be split from the center-left.
Everything was decided in the centre-right, with Forza Italia, Fratelli D'Italia, Lega, Democrazia Cristiana and several other civic lists, which announced the name of Walter Tesauro as candidate for mayor.
We Moderates are currently out of the coalition with the investiture of former city councilor Angelo Failla still at stake.
Another solo race is predicted for Salvatore Licata's Orgoglio Nisseno – a list capable of taking over 7% in the 2019 elections -, with the mayoral candidate being Annalisa Petitto.
Work is on the high seas in the centre-left, with the Democratic Party which, before indicating the name of the possible candidate for mayor in the municipal elections, will have to understand who can be part of the coalition.
