Carpi administrative elections 2024: date, candidates and polls

Carpi 2024 administrative elections: the engines are warming up in view of the municipal elections which, barring surprises, should be merged as regards the first round of the European elections as already happened five years ago for a sort of election day.
Alberto Bellelli, the current mayor of Carpi of the Democratic Party, who has now reached the end of his second consecutive mandate, will not be able to be on the field in the 2024 local elections.
For the choice of the center-left mayoral candidate, the Democratic Party has decided to rely on the primaries which will be held on March 3rd: the councilor Riccardo Righi and the historian Giovanni Taurasi will be in the field.
The center-right should instead focus on the Fratelli d'Italia municipal councilor Annalisa Arletti, but several civic candidates should also not be missing in these elections.
While waiting for the polls, here is a guide to the Carpi 2024 administrative elections with the probable date of the vote, the possible mayoral candidates and the dictates of the electoral law with which the citizens will elect their next mayor.

On the same day the polls opened throughout Italy for the European elections and in Piedmont also for the regional elections.
Even if an official communication from the government has not yet arrived, everything would suggest a merger in 2024 too: in this case the first round of the local elections in Carpi 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 government will maintain the double voting day – polls also open on Mondays until 3pm – as done recently.
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 Carpi is a municipality with more than 15,000 inhabitants, if no candidate in the first round obtains an absolute majority 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).

In the Carpi 2024 local elections, the Democratic Party will choose its candidate through primaries which will be held on March 3rd.
In the running are the current councilor for urban planning Riccardo Righi and the historian Giovanni Taurasi.
What will be the centre-left coalition has already been outlined: in addition to the Democratic Party there will also be Article 1-Italian Left, Italia Viva and +Europa, Carpi Comune, Verdi, Carpi 2.0 and Laboratorio Carpi.
The 5 Star Movement will instead go on its own, while there are several civic lists ready to run alone in these local elections or to form a coalition when there is greater clarity on the candidates of the two main sides.
In the centre-right everything would suggest a candidacy of Annalisa Arletti, current group leader of the Brothers of Italy in the city council: her name would be given the green light by the League and Forza Italia.
