2018 City Council Election Districts

City of Imperial Beach City Council District-Based Election Changes


Beginning in 2020, Imperial Beach City Council elections transitioned from at-large voting to district-based voting. The City has been divided into four districts, and only the voters residing in a district will decide who will represent that district. The Mayor will continue to be elected by all voters in the city, regardless of a voter's residence location. Voters from Districts 2 & 4 will elect Council Members to represent Districts 2 & 4 during the November 3, 2020 General Municipal Election. Council Members that were previously elected in 2018 will continue to represent the City at-large until the November 2022 election.
