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. The terms are staggered so that two terms expire in 2020 and three terms expire in 2022. The City Council is in the process of transitioning to District Elections.
