HOW DO DISTRICT-BASED ELECTIONS WORK?
The City of Glendora has changed how Council Members are elected and switched from an at-large election system to a district-based election system. The district elections will be phased in beginning March 2020, when representatives from Council Districts 2, 3 and 5 will be elected. Two years later, in 2022, representatives from Districts 1 and 4 will be on the ballot. Voters will only vote for the City Council position up for election in their specified district.
All five current Council Member will serve as at-large Council members until the end of their current terms, which is in 2020 or 2022. Currently, each of the Council Members resides in their own district. At the end of their terms, the City Council Members can run for re-election by district.
