Seven council members serve the City of Burlington in a mayor-council form of government. Burlington consists of six council wards with one candidate elected from each ward. The seventh council member serves in the at-large position. All councilors are elected to four-year terms, including the mayor.

The council wards were restructured in 2012 based on the 2010 census so that population is similar in each ward. Read the summary of the revision to the council ward boundaries (PDF). View a map of the city council wards (PDF).
