On December 13, 2016, City Council declared the results of the November 8, 2016 General Municipal Election, which included the passage of Measure II – By-District Elections. At that same meeting, City Council directed the Mayor and City Clerk to execute Ordinance No. 3230 which establishes by-district elections of five council members.
Passage of Measure II means voters in two districts will vote for their district’s City Council Member in November 2018 and voters in the remaining three districts will cast ballots for a City Council Member to represent their respective districts in November 2020.
City Council will begin discussions in early 2017 regarding which district City Council seats will go before voters in the 2018 election and which will go in the 2020 elections.
Two plaintiffs sued the City of Fullerton in late 2014 for allegedly violating the California Voting Rights Act. The plaintiffs claim the City's at-large elections allegedly dilute the voting power of minority voters and/or prevent them from electing the candidate(s) of their choice. The City has entered into a settlement agreement with the plaintiffs to settle the litigation by placing a ballot measure before the voters in November 2016 to establish a district-based election system.
