Elections and Voting

November 7, 2023 Municipal Election

City Election Information
The City of Northglenn conducts municipal elections on the first Tuesday in November in odd-numbered years. The next city election will be held on Nov. 7, 2023. The City of Northglenn is divided into four wards. Each ward is represented by two City Council members that serve four-year staggered terms. The mayor is elected at-large every four years. City elections are non-partisan, which means City Council candidates do not run under any party label. 

The following City Council positions will be elected:

  • Mayor - 4-year term
  • Ward 1 Council member - 4-year term
  • Ward 2 Council member - 4-year term
  • Ward 3 Council member - 4-year term
  • Ward 3 Council member - 2-year term*
  • Ward 4 Council member - 4-year term
  • Ward 4 Council member - 2-year term*

*Voters in Wards 3 and 4 will elect two Council members in November 2023 due to vacancies on Council that were filled by appointment as required by the City Charter. The shortened two-year terms are necessary to keep the Council terms staggered.

Voters will also consider two local ballot measures at the Nov. 7, 2023 election: Ballot Issue 3G - Sales Tax Extension and Ballot Question 3H - Updating the Charter Language to be Gender-Silent. Please see the City's 2023 Fact Sheet for information about the ballot measures.

A list of the Mayor and City Council candidates, candidate profiles, and campaign finance information is available on the Candidate Information page.
