District Election Procedures and Deadlines
Historically, Board members have been elected on an at-large basis, with all voters within the District voting for each Board member. During a series of public hearings held between April and June 2019, the District established five electoral Divisions in order to transition to a Division-based election in which each Board member is elected by a specific Division within the District. Prospective Board Members must be registered voters and reside within the boundaries of the Division that they will represent.
District elections are held in conjunction with the Statewide General Elections in November of even-numbered years. Each Board member is elected to a four-year term with terms for Board members representing Divisions 1 and 2 expiring in one even-numbered year (2020, 2024, etc.) and terms for Board members representing Divisions 3, 4, and 5, expiring the following even-numbered year (2022, 2026, etc.).
The County Elections Office is the Election Officer for the District and conducts the election. Nomination papers may be obtained from and election questions directed to:
Marin County Elections Department
3501 Civic Center Drive, Suite 121
San Rafael, CA 94903
