Rules & Procedures
The City of Durango conducts its elections pursuant to the Home Rule Charter of the City of Durango (Article VI) and the Colorado Municipal Election Code.
  • The City conducts regular, biennial elections to elect City Council members on the first Tuesday in April of odd-numbered years. 
  • All City Councilor members must be registered electors of the City of Durango and are elected on an at-large basis; that is, they are elected by all registered electors of the city rather than by a specific district or ward within the city.
  • Terms of office are staggered. Two council members are elected at one election, and three council members are elected the next election year.
  • The top vote-getting candidates serve four-year terms. The terms of office commence on the third Tuesday of April after the election.
