The California Voter Participation Act, SB 415, requires local jurisdictions to hold elections for governing members (City Council members) exclusively on statewide election dates. Senate Bill (SB) 568, which became operative January 1, 2019, changed the date of the statewide primary elections from June to March in even-numbered years.
On November 19, 2018, the Mill Valley City Council adopted Ordinance No. 1305 to move the City’s General Municipal Elections to the same date as the statewide direct primary election (the City’s next direct primary will be held in March, 2020).
The Marin County Board of Supervisors approved the City’s change of election date at its January 29, 2019 meeting.
More information about upcoming Election deadlines will be posted on the City's website as the March, 2020, General Municipal Election date gets closer. In the meantime, election questions can be directed to the City Clerk's office at: (415) 388-4033 or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
