The 2019 Denver mayoral election was the 2019 edition of the quadrennial elections held to determine the Mayor of the City of Denver, Colorado. The election was held on May 7, 2019.[1] Since no candidate received a majority of votes, a runoff election was held on June 4, 2019 between the two candidates with the most votes, incumbent Mayor Michael Hancock and Jaime Giellis.[2] Hancock defeated Giellis in the runoff election, winning a third term as Mayor, and becoming the first mayor to be reelected to a third term since Wellington Webb in 1999. Hancock's third inauguration was held on July 15, 2019.[3]

The election was officially nonpartisan, with its winner being elected to a four-year term. The elections were part of the 2019 Denver elections, which included elections for City Council and city Clerk and Recorder.
