To be elected, a candidate must receive a majority (50% + 1) of the votes cast; if no candidate garners a majority, a run-off election is held between the two candidates that received the most votes. Runoff elections are held on the second Tuesday of April. Mayor and Council receive their oath of office and their new terms begin on the first Monday after the second Tuesday of April. Also, in April of each year, the Council also elects a Chair and Vice-Chair.
