Historical Background for Transitioning From At-Large to By-District Elections

In accordance with Senate Bill 493 and growing concerns about and challenges to at-large election systems throughout the State, the Yucaipa City Council transitioned from at-large elections to by-district elections for City Council seats beginning with the 2016 General Municipal Election.  A “by-district” election is a method of electing members in which each City Council Member is elected only by the voters in the district in which the candidate resides.
