Election News

The City of Rancho Cucamonga consolidates general municipal elections in November of even-numbered years to elect members to serve on the City Council. Special elections are also held as needed. The City of Rancho Cucamonga contracts with the San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters to conduct such elections. The City Clerk is the elections official with duties described in the California Elections Code.

Because City Council terms overlap, two positions are open at one election and two positions are open at the next election two years later. The Mayor is elected city-wide every four years.  Council Members are elected for four-year terms and must be registered voters and must reside within the designated district boundary.  There are no term limits for City Council Members.

Below are the dates of upcoming elections by District and for the seat of Mayor.

District-Based Election System

On November 8th, 2016, the voters of City of Rancho Cucamonga approved Measure Q, which was then carried, adopted, and ratified by the City Council on December 7, 2016. Measure Q established a District voting system for Members of the City Council that replaces the previous at-large electoral voting system.  The new system includes four (4) voting districts, which will ultimately be represented by newly elected Council Members that live in each area.  The position of Mayor remains directly elected by all the voters in the City.  

Starting with the November 6, 2018, election, Council Members will be elected from geographically defined districts. Districts 2 & 3 will hold elections on November 8, 2018,  along with the seat of Mayor. Districts 1 & 4 will hold elections in the November 2020 General Election.
