The City of Arvada will hold a municipal election on Nov. 2. In Arvada, municipal elections are held on the first Tuesday in November in odd-numbered years. All municipal elections for elected officials are nonpartisan, meaning that candidates may not align themselves with a particular political party.
Arvada is divided into four Council districts. Residents of each district elect a Councilmember who lives within the district , while the Mayor and two other Councilmembers are elected At-Large and represent the entire City of Arvada. The current Arvada district boundaries were adopted in 2013.
This year, six candidates are running for city council; two At-Large candidates, two District 1 candidates, and two District 3 candidates. The At-Large candidates are running to replace outgoing Mayor Pro-Tem Dot Miller, the District 1 candidates are running to replace outgoing Councilmember Nancy Ford, and Suzie Schuckman is running against incumbent John Marriott, who is seeking re-election.
