Elections

The annual municipal election is scheduled for Saturday, May 9, 2015, to elect the Mayor and Councilmembers for Places 1, 2 and 6.

The City contracts with the Dallas County Elections Department to conduct joint elections along with other entities.  Participating in joint elections enables the City to reduce election expenses and is more convenient for voters who can visit one location to vote on all issues including municipal candidates and school board trustees.

An election is held each year on the second Saturday in May to elect councilmembers:
  • In even-numbered years, an election is held to fill Places 3, 4, and 5.
  • In odd-numbered years, the Mayor and Places 1, 2, and 6 are elected.
The Mayor and Places 5 and 6 are considered at-large positions. Councilmembers elected to fill Places 1, 2, 3 and 4 are required to live in their respective districts; however, all places are voted into office by the entire city electorate and serve for two-year terms.
