Annapolis voters cast ballots for Mayor and all eight councilmembers. All candidates serve a four-year term. In mid-October, mail-in ballots were sent to every registered voter in the City. Voters had the option to mark their mail-in ballot and return via drop box or by mail. Voters also had the option to go to their Ward-designated polling place on Election Day.
This is the first time that the City of Annapolis has conducted municipal elections (Primary and General) through a vote-by-mail process.
