District Elections

The City of Arroyo Grande, like many cities and school districts across the state, is making a change in how voters elect its City Council. Beginning in 2022, voters will vote for one City Council Member who lives in their district. This will replace the current system of at-large citywide elections in which voters have the ability to vote for all City Council Members. The Mayor seat will continue to be elected at-large.

We need your help to make this change and draw new City Council districts!

What do you consider the boundaries of your neighborhood? One of our primary goals when drawing City Council districts is to draw lines that respect neighborhoods, history, and geographical elements.  

As of December, 2021 all posted mapping tools have been updated with the official population totals.
If you drew a DistrictR map using unofficial population estimates (prior to November 22, when the tool was updated), you will need to draw a new map using the official population data to ensure that your map is population balanced. If you try to edit your original DistrictR map, it will still be using the estimated data; you must start a new drawing by clicking the purple button “built out of 2020 blocks.”

Map submissions are due February 4th.
