City of Orange By-District Elections Information

City of Orange District Elections Information Logo

SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATES

As of the November 2020 General Municipal Election, the City of Orange will move from a five person City Council- four directly elected at-large Council Members and a directly elected at-large Mayor- to a seven person City Council with one directly elected at-large Mayor.  The City’s six new voting districts will each elect one Council Member, with everyone voting for Mayor.

Because Council terms will be staggered so that the entire Council will not be up for re-election at the same time, the districts will rotate through the election process as follows:

Districts 2, 3 and 5 will have Council Members elected at the General Municipal Election in November 2020, and every four years afterwards. 

District 1, which was randomly selected, will elect a two-year term Council Member at the General Municipal Election in November 2020, after which the District will elect a Council Member in 2022, and every four years afterwards. Because there will be four districts with seats open in 2020, this was necessary to make sure that, going forward, there were three open Council seats in three separate districts up for election every two years thereafter.

Districts 4 and 6 will have Council Members elected at the General Municipal Election in November 2022, and every four years thereafter.

The Mayor will be an at-large seat, directly elected by voters from all districts at the General Municipal Election in November 2020, and every two years thereafter.

The Orange County Registrar of Voters will produce the detailed street-by-street official City of Orange District Map, which will be added here once available.
