District Elections

The City of San Dimas, like hundreds of cities and school districts across the state, is considering making a change in how voters elect its City Council. Beginning in 2022, voters would vote for one City Council Member who lives in their district, and for the Mayor. This would replace the current system of at-large citywide elections in which voters have the ability to vote for all City Council Members.

We need your help to make this change and draw new City Council districts!

One of our primary goals when drawing City Council districts is to draw lines that respect neighborhoods, history, and geographical elements. We look forward to your participation in this process.

Upcoming Meeting November 23rd to Approve Ordinance 1292

The City Council met on November 15th where they introduced Ordinance 1292 establishing a District-based system of elections for the members of the City Council. The City Council will meet on November 23rd, 2021 to adopt Ordinance 1292 that will include Map 131 (DistrictR  Map ID 73950).
