Elections Voting Workshop

SANTA BARBARA, CA - 5/20/2014

The public is invited to attend a Workshop on District Elections and Other Voting System Options on Thursday, May 29 at 6 p.m. at the Public Library, Faulkner Gallery.

The City of Santa Barbara currently elects the Mayor and Councilmembers through an at-large system where the Mayor and six Councilmembers are elected by voters to represent all City residents. The Santa Barbara City Council is considering a change to a district-based election system where all or some Councilmembers are elected by geographically-defined districts. On April 29, the City Council discussed the possibility of creating a hybrid at-large/district election system where the Mayor and two Councilmembers are elected at-large and four Councilmembers are elected by districts.

The City Council is holding the workshop to get input from the public on the current election system and gauge interest in shifting to a district election system where some Councilmembers are elected by geographically-defined districts. Members of the public are welcome to make suggestions on other representation options and aspects of the City election system and format.
