The Crystal City Council is composed of a mayor and six council members. The city is divided into two sections and four wards. The mayor is elected at large; council members must reside in the section or ward of the city in which they are running for office.

This year’s municipal general election will be Nov. 3, 2020, and consists of electing a member to the following offices (all seats are four-year terms):

   • Mayor
   • Council Member Section I
   • Council Member Ward 3
   • Council Member Ward 4

In-person absentee voting is available now until Nov. 2, the day before election day. All eligible voters in Crystal can vote absentee – either by mail or in person at Crystal City Hall.
