Mayorships allow you to compete with friends and strangers for a crown at all of your local hangouts! You become mayor of a place by checking in more than anyone else in the last 30 days. Only 1 check-in per day counts and ties go to reigning mayor.


Check-ins that are too close together, from third-party apps, or when we think you’re too far away won’t count towards mayorships. Remember, no one likes a cheater; so only check in when you’re actually at a place.


To see where you stand, tap on the profile tab to see both your current mayorships and places where you’re in the running. You can view your friends mayorships by visiting their profile and tapping on the "Mayorships" button.
