Chihuahua is a state in Northwest Mexico that is divided into 67 municipalities.[1] According to the 2015 Mexican Intercensal Survey, Chihuahua is the 11th most populous state with 3,554,877 inhabitants and the largest by land area spanning 247,798.08 square kilometres (95,675.37 sq mi).[1][2]

Municipalities in Chihuahua are administratively autonomous of the state according to the 115th article of the 1917 Constitution of Mexico.[3] Every three years, citizens elect a municipal president (Spanish: presidente municipal) by a plurality voting system who heads a concurrently elected municipal council (ayuntamiento) responsible for providing all the public services for their constituents. The municipal council consists of a variable number of trustees and councillors (regidores y síndicos).[4] Municipalities are responsible for public services (such as water and sewerage), street lighting, public safety, traffic, supervision of slaughterhouses and the maintenance of public parks, gardens and cemeteries.[5] They may also assist the state and federal governments in education, emergency fire and medical services, environmental protection and maintenance of monuments and historical landmarks. Since 1984, they have had the power to collect property taxes and user fees, although more funds are obtained from the state and federal governments than from their own income.[5]

The largest municipality by population is the Ciudad Juárez, with 1,391,180 residents or approximately 39.1% of the state population.[1] The smallest municipality by population is Huejotitán with 952 residents.[1] The largest municipality by land area is Ahumada which spans 16,927.60 km2 (6,535.78 sq mi), and the smallest is Santa Bárbara which spans 346.15 km2 (133.65 sq mi).[2] The first municipality to incorporate was Rosales on July 8, 1820 and the newest municipality is Guachochi which incorporated January 9, 1963.[6]
