How Do I Become a Candidate?

The next regular municipal election will be held on Tuesday, November 5, 2019. This election will be a mail ballot election coordinated with Adams and Weld Counties. There are four (4) Brighton City Council seats up for election: Ward 1 Councilmember, Ward 2 Councilmember, Ward 3 Councilmember and Ward 4 Councilmember. Municipal elections in Colorado are “nonpartisan,” which means that candidates do not run for election on a designated party ticket.


  • Must be at least 18 years of age
  • Must be a citizen of the Unites States of America
  • Must be a qualified elector in the City of Brighton
  • Must be a resident of the City, and in the case of Councilmembers a resident of his/ her respective ward, for at least 12 consecutive months preceding the date of the election
