At each regular election, voters will choose a Mayor (who serves a two-year term) and three Council members (who serve four-year terms). In addition to electing representatives, voters are usually presented with ballot issues, such as Charter amendments, financial issues, or initiated or referred ordinances or resolutions.

All municipal elections are NON-PARTISAN

Special elections may be called by ordinance of the City Council and may be held at any time. Special elections are often held in conjunction with the Larimer County General Election, held in November of even-numbered years.  Special elections are usually limited to consideration of ballot issues.
