Election Method

The Apex Town Council consists of the Mayor and five Council Members. Each member is elected to a four-year term by Apex voters. Elections are held in odd years, and are staggered, so that only half of the Council is on the ballot during an election. 

In Apex, all members of the Town Council are elected at-large. Every voter completes a ballot that lists all candidates, selecting their top three choices for councilmembers. As a result, the top three vote-earners are appointed to the Council. This is a little different in years when the Mayor is elected - voters would select one candidate for Mayor, and their top two candidates for council members.   

(Note: An at-large election is the opposite of a district-based election, in which members are elected from geographic districts of town. A district member must reside in the district they represent, and only residents of the district may vote for that district’s member.)

Role of Council

The Council represents Apex residents and works to establish policies that are responsive to residents’ needs and wishes, and that affect the overall operation of the community as a whole.

Council members and residents count on the manager and their staff to provide complete and objective information about local operations, discuss the pros and cons of alternatives, and offer an assessment of the long-term consequences of their decisions.
