Council District Elections

2019 Council District Map

As of November 2018, the City of Fremont has six Council districts. Following the completion of our transition to District-based representation with the November 2020 election, all residents will be represented by a Council Member elected by their District and the Mayor will continue to be elected at-large by all city voters. 
This change to transition from at-large to district-based elections was adopted on June 13, 2017 by the City Council with an
ordinance approving six new Council districts as shown in the map and establishing a phase-in schedule. Check out our District Locator Tool, an interactive Council districts map that provides an easy way for residents to look up a location and the resulting district number.

In the November 2018 election, voters participated in the first district-based election when four City Council seats were up for election; District 1 (Northwest portion of the city -- two-year term), District 2 (Central north portion), District 3 (Central portion), and District 4 (Eastern portion).

In the November 2020 election, voters in District 1 (Northwest portion), District 5 (South portion) and District 6 (Central south portion) will each elect a City Councilmember, and all voters will decide the Mayor's position.

During the 2018 and 2020 elections, candidates will be elected from districts where they live pursuant to the following timetable:

2) Councilmember Vinnie Bacon and Vice Mayor Raj Salwan will remain at-large councilmembers until their terms expire in November 2020. Councilmember Bacon will have reached his 2-term limit and Vice Mayor Salwan will be eligible to run to represent District 5.
