In 1966, the City adopted the Hillsborough County permanent registration system of electors. To be eligible to vote in municipal elections, a person must be registered as an elector in Hillsborough County at the Office of the Supervisor of Elections. This single registration serves for city, county, and state elections.
City elections are held the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November of even-numbered years. The Mayor is elected by a majority vote to a four-year term. Five Council members serve staggered four-year terms. A candidate for elective office in the City must have been a resident of Temple Terrace or an area recently annexed into Temple Terrace for two years prior to the election.
