May 16, 2023 Mayoral Run-off Election

Results of the April 4, 2023 General Municipal Election have been certified. Because no mayoral candidate received more than 50 percent of the vote, City Charter dictates a run-off election between the top two candidates on May 16. The City Clerk drew names for ballot position: Wayne Williams will appear first on the ballot and Yemi Mobolade will appear second. 

The City Clerk will be mailing ballot packets for the May 16, 2023 Mayoral Run-off Election to registered, active voters who reside within the corporate boundaries of the City of Colorado Springs on April 24.  Ballots must be returned by 7 p.m. on election day, Tuesday, May 16.
