Five Council Spots on November Ballot

Northglenn voters will elect five council members at the Nov. 2, 2021 regular municipal election. One council member will be elected from wards 1, 2, and 3 to serve four-year terms. 

Two council members will be elected from Ward 4 – one to serve a four-year term and one to serve a two-year term due to the previous vacancy created by Council Member Antonio B. Esquibel’s resignation in June. Ward 4 candidates must decide whether they want to run for the two-year term or four-year term; they cannot be a candidate for both positions. 

City Council members have the opportunity to help shape the city’s future and represent residents in their ward. Serving the community as an elected official can be a very rewarding experience. It takes dedication, a willingness to learn, and a substantial time commitment. 

If you want to know more about being a council member and the requirements involved in the election process, stop by the City Clerk’s Office (located in City Hall, 11701 Community Center Drive) to pick up a candidate information packet.
