The method of election is different for the type of Council Member. Each is elected for a four-year term. The last election was in 2019 for the five At-Large Council Member positions, for terms that run from 2019 to 2023. The At-Large Council Members are elected by a cumulative voting process which allows the voter to distribute a total of five votes to one or up to five candidates.
The Mayor and District Council Members were elected in 2021 for terms that run from 2021 to 2025. The Mayor and District Council members are elected by a traditional one-vote method; i.e., in each Council District, a voter is allowed to vote for one candidate for District Council Member, in addition to being allowed one vote for a candidate for Mayor.
