The City of St. Catharines is governed by a Mayor and 12 councillors, who are elected every four years.
The Mayor is elected at large, which means all citizens eligible to vote choose from the same mayoral candidates when casting a ballot. By contrast, councillors are elected to represent one of six wards. Voters within a specific ward elect two councillors.
The Mayor of St. Catharines is Walter Sendzik.
