General Municipal Elections are held the first Tuesday, following the first Monday, in November of even numbered years. General municipal elections are for the election of Councilmembers and for other purposes as the City Council may prescribe. The California Elections Code establishes the procedures for conducting municipal elections. The City Clerk’s department administers the City’s municipal elections. 

City Council members serve four-year terms of office and are subject to Term Limits. In 2019, the City Council transitioned to Districts.  Click this link for information regarding the transition to Districts (District Elections) or the Adopted District Map. The Council terms are staggered so that three terms (Districts 1, 2 and 5) expire in 2022 and two terms (Districts 3 and 4) expire in 2024.
