All municipal elections are nonpartisan, and candidates for municipal office are elected at large. For city councillor, the three candidates receiving the highest number of votes will be elected to four-year terms. For mayor, the candidate receiving the highest number of votes that equals at least 40 percent of the total votes cast will be elected. Should a candidate for mayor fail to receive 40 percent of the total votes cast, a run-off election will be conducted with the two highest vote getters. The candidate receiving the highest number of votes will be elected to a four-year term of office.
