The Goleta November election is here. By now you should have received, or soon will be receiving, your ballot in the mail. Ballot drop boxes are officially open 24 hours a day through 8:00 p.m. on November 8, election night. In Goleta, there are two secure official ballot box locations: one at Goleta City Hall (130 Cremona Drive) and one at the Goleta Community Center (5679 Hollister Avenue) at the end of parking lot in front of the building.

This is an historic election for Goleta as it is our first ever By-District Election. The City is now divided into four districts and registered voters in Districts 1 and 2 will have the opportunity to elect a City Councilmember from the District in which they live.
