The Town of Fairfax has seven elected offices each for a 4-year term, as follows: five Town Council Members, the Town Treasurer, and the Town Clerk. The Town Council terms are staggered so that no more than three seats are up for election at one election. Elections are held in November.
The Town is in the process of switching its elections from odd-numbered years to even-numbered years, as required by state law (SB 415). To achieve this change, in 2017 and 2019, officers are elected to a one-time shortened term of 3 years to expire in 2020 and 2022, respectively, when the terms will return to 4 years.
