Candidate Responses

You are represented by three members on Denver City Council: one member who is from your specific district and two “at large” members who represent the whole city. The 2015 Denver municipal election was held on May 5, 2015. You can find the results here. Candidates who received at least 50% of the vote in this election are declared the winners. In races where no candidate received at least 50% of the vote, the top two candidates will be in a runoff election on June 2nd. City Council Districts 2, 7, 10, and 11 will have runoffs. You can find candidate responses from the candidates in the runoff below.
