Municipal Elections

Municipal Elections are held every two years (odd years).
  • Council terms are staggered so only four seats are up for election at one time, the other three seats are up for election at the same time as the mayoral election.
  • Ogden City is divided into four Municipal Wards for the purpose of the election of Ogden City council members.
  • Ogden at-large candidates run for three distinct seats on the council: Seat A, Seat B, and Seat C.
  • Unlike some other cities, which take the top vote-getters for the at-large seats, Ogden City takes the top vote-getter for each seat.
The next Municipal Election will be held November 2017.
