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. Our General Municipal Elections are held in November of even-numbered years, and consolidated with any other election on the same date.
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 were elected to a one-time shortened term of 3 years to expire in November of 2020 and 2022, respectively, when the terms will return to 4 years.
The next Fairfax General Municipal Election will be held on November 3, 2020, for the election of three members to the Town Council, each for a term of four years. The nominations period for persons wishing to run for Town Council will open on July 13, 2020. If you think you may be interested, please select the button below "How to Run for Office."
