Get to know your City Council

 

You vote for everyone who serves on City Council. Durham uses the residency ward system to elect City Council members - this provides representation from different areas of the city. Council candidates must live in the ward they seek to represent BUT the candidate is elected by all city voters. Wards do not affect where you vote or which candidate(s) you can vote for.

You can email all your council members at once
