The Midland City Council is made up of five elected officials. City residents elect these officials from the wards in which the candidates reside. Council members are elected for two-year terms. Council elections are held in even-numbered years, at which time the entire Council is up for re-election.
City Council elections are non-partisan. The mayor and mayor pro tem are elected from among the Council members by a vote of the City Council.
The Mayor of Midland is the presiding officer at all City Council meetings and is authorized to sign legal documents on behalf of the City. The mayor represents the City on local, state and national levels. In the mayor's absence, those duties are performed by the mayor pro tem.
The next City Council elections will be held in August 2024 (primary, if necessary) and November 2024 (general).
