Municipal elections are held every two years in the City of Franklin.
To be eligible for an elected office, candidates must be a resident of the state of Tennessee for more than one year and resident of the City of Franklin for at least six months immediately preceding their election to office. The Mayor and Aldermen must reside within the city during their term of office. The Mayor and aldermen-at-large are not required to reside within any particular ward. The aldermen who are elected by ward must have resided in their respective wards for at least sixty days preceding their election and shall continue to reside within the ward during their term of office. Aldermen have staggered four year terms. Voters elect the mayor and at-large aldermen during one election. Ward Aldermen are elected two years later.
The next municipal election will be held in 2017 where voters will elect their Ward Aldermen.
