Regular Municipal Elections are held on the first Tuesday in November in odd-numbered years. Because there are two councilmembers from each ward, citizens generally elect one Councilmember from each of the three Wards every two years and a Mayor every four years.
The City Clerk is the designated election official for all Municipal Elections. General Elections, where United States senators, representatives to congress, state and district officers, county commissioners and other county officers are elected, are held on the first Tuesday in November of even-numbered years and conducted by the County Clerk's office.
