At the City of Cañon City General Municipal Election on November 7, 2023, the office of Mayor and four of the seven Council seats will be up for election. 

The office of Mayor is for a two-year term.  There is no district residency requirement, but the general Qualifications for Office still apply. 

Each of the Council seats is for a four-year term. 

  • 1 seat  – District 2 seat (Candidate must live within the boundaries of District 2)
  • 1 seat – District 4 seat (Candidate must live within the boundaries of District 4)
  •  2 seats – At large (Candidates must live in the City, but there is no district residency requirement)

In determining a district residency requirement, the City election district map will determine if a potential candidate meets district residency requirements. The district map is available at https://canoncity.maps.arcgis.com and in the 2023 Information and Guidelines booklet. 

Candidates should confirm residency eligibility with the City Clerk prior to announcing their candidacy.
