In November 2018, City of Fremont voters will participate in the first district-based election when four City Council seats will be up for election. Fremont voters will select from City Council candidates who live in their districts only. Councilmembers will be elected according to the following timetable:
Voters residing in Districts 1 through 4 will be casting a vote for their Council representative in 2018. In more detail, this includes District 1 (Northwest portion of the city—two-year term), District 2 (Central North portion—four-year term), District 3 (Central portion—four-year term), and District 4 (Eastern portion—four-year term). In the November 2020 election, voters in Districts 1, 5, and 6 will each elect a City Councilmember and voters citywide will elect the Mayor, which remains an at-large position.
In an effort to assist citizens in determining which Council district they reside in, Fremont’s Geographic Information System (GIS) Division has developed the Council District Locator. This online tool allows citizens to enter their addresses into an interactive map to identify the Council district number assigned to that specific location. Residents can now access the Council District Locator.
