Mobile City Council

The Mobile City Council consists of seven members elected from their respective districts. Municipal Elections are held every 4 years, and are non-partisan.

A supermajority of five votes is required to conduct council business.

Since 1985 the government of Mobile has consisted of a mayor and a seven member city council.
In the 1975 case Bolden v. City of Mobile the U.S. federal courts ruled that the previous form of government which consisted of three city commissioners who were elected at-large, diluted the African American vote.
