On January 15, 2019, the City Council considered transitioning to District-based elections, due to a recent demand letter alleging that the current At-large method of election violates the California Voting Rights Act (CVRA). At that meeting Council unanimously adopted a resolution of intent to transition from At-large to District-based Elections pursuant to California Elections Code Section 10010(e)(2). All documents related to this action can be found below. More information will be posted as the process moves forward.
