The 2015 Orlando mayoral election was held on Tuesday, November 3, 2015, to elect the mayor of Orlando, Florida.[1] Incumbent mayor Buddy Dyer ran for a fourth full term.[2]

Municipal elections in Orlando and Orange County are non-partisan. If no candidate receives a majority of the votes in the general election, runoffs are held between the two candidates that received the greatest number of votes.[3] On November 3, 2015, incumbent mayor Buddy Dyer won with 62.5% of the vote, eliminating the need for a run-off.[4]
