Each District is represented by two City Councilmembers that serve two-year terms, along with the Mayor who is elected at-large for a four year term. City elections are non-partisan, meaning free from party affiliation, political group, bias, or designation.
The City of Greenwood Village holds its regular municipal elections in odd numbered years on the first Tuesday of November.
Municipal elections are administered by the City Clerk, under the Village’s Home Rule Charter and the Municipal Code of the City of Greenwood.
