Ann Arbor, MI Increases Mayor and City Council Term Limits
Ann Arbor voters approved a ballot measure to increase terms for mayor and city council to four years (Proposal 1). The ballot proposal will have the mayor and five city council seats elected in even-numbered years coinciding with Michigan gubernatorial elections and the other five city council seats will be elected in even-numbered years coinciding with presidential elections.
Previously, half of the city council was elected on odd-numbered years.
The proposal will begin with 2018 elections and city council members elected in 2017 will serve a three-year term.
