In 2023, Philadelphians will elect our 100th mayor.
We will also elect a new slate of City Councilmembers — including to fill the seats of the five members who resigned to run for Mayor.
The Citizen’s voters guides, candidate profiles, in-depth reporting and analysis are here to help you throughout the campaign.
Make sure you’re ready to vote.
We can help you with that — including with info on how to vote by mail — here.
Mark your calendar.
The 2023 Primary Election is May 16. (That’s when overwhelmingly Democrat Philadelphia tends to choose our mayor.) The 2023 General Election is November 7. (That’s when we’ll choose our City Council.)
