General Election 
The city clerk conducts all elections in the city. Municipal elections are generally held in odd years.

Running for Office
Our mayor and council serve four-year staggered terms in order to ensure that at no time is the council composed of a full panel of freshman members. In order to qualify for the position of mayor or council member, one must meet the following requirements:

  • Must reside inside the city limits of the City of Lilburn for at least one year as of the first Tuesday of November of the year for which you are qualifying
  • Must be registered to vote
  • Must state which post you are qualifying
  • Must pay the qualifying fee of $105 - council seat

Elected officials take office at the first organizational meeting in January following the election. Once elected, all council members must continue to live inside the city limits of Lilburn during their period of service and remain a registered voter.



Register to Vote
If you are not registered to vote, you have options:
  • You can now register to vote online if you have a Georgia issued personal identification card or a Georgia issued driver’s license. Visit the Secretary of State’s website at www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/
  • You can fill out a Voter Registration form that can be picked up at the front office of City Hall or you can download the PDF version here: Voter Registration Form

Once you have completed the form, it must be printed and either mailed or hand delivered to the Voter Registrations and Elections Office. By law, applications received via email or fax will be rejected.

Mail Voter Registration documents to:
Gwinnett County Board of Registrations and Elections
75 Langley Drive
Lawrenceville, GA 30046

Note: Although the above form states DO NOT FOLD OVER, STAPLE, OR TAPE, it only applies to the printed original form. The PDF copy may be sealed as needed for mailing, although we recommend that staples not be used. Staples get caught in the mail processing equipment and often tear the documents, which could delay or prevent you from becoming registered to vote.
