ABOUT CHULA VISTA ELECTIONS
It is the duty of the City Clerk to conduct local elections in accordance with federal, state, and local laws. Chula Vista consolidates its elections with statewide elections in June and November of each even numbered year. Effective with the 2016 elections, Councilmembers are elected by district. The Mayor and City Attorney continue to be elected at large. The two candidates who receive the most votes at the June election run off in November. If there are two or fewer candidates for any seat, the election for that seat will be held in November. In November, the candidate with the highest number of votes is elected. The term for each position is four years, and there is a limit of two consecutive terms.
Election results are reported by the Registrar of Voters beginning shortly after 8 PM on election day and are updated periodically (view election results update schedule) following the election as mail and provisional ballots are counted. All results are unofficial until completion of the official canvass of the election on or before July 7, 2016. County-wide results can be found at www.sdvote.com.
2016 ELECTIONSMembers of City Council Districts 3 and 4 will be elected in 2016, as follows:
Only two candidates for District 3 submitted sufficient nomination papers and qualified for placement on the ballot. In accordance with Section 300.A.3 of the Chula Vista Charter, because there are only two qualified candidates, the election to the position will occur at the November 8, 2016 runoff election.
The first election for District 4 will be held June 7, 2016. The top two vote-getters in the June election will be the candidates in the runoff election on November 8, 2016.
