The mayor of Boston is elected to a four-year term by
plurality voting.

City Council

The City Council is elected every two years. There are nine
ward, or neighborhood, seats, each elected by plurality voting by the residents of that ward.
There are four at-large seats. Each voter casts up to four votes for
at-large councillors, no more than one vote per candidate. The top
four vote-getters are elected. The President of the City Council is
elected by the Councillors from within themselves.
