GENERAL MUNICIPAL ELECTION OVERVIEW
The following information is provided as an overview of the election process for a seat on the Chino Hills City Council. Elections are consolidated with the Statewide General Election which is held on the first Tuesday, following the first Monday in November of even-numbered years.
Terms are staggered so that three seats are available during one election cycle and two seats are available during the next cycle. There are no term limits for City Council Members. The Mayor is selected from the membership of the City Council, routinely at the second meeting in November of each year, effective December 1st, to preside at Council Meetings and to act as the ceremonial head of the City. The Vice Mayor is also chosen at that time and acts in the absence of the Mayor. If you would like additional information or are interested in running for election, please contact the City Clerk at (909) 364-2624.

New District Boundaries
The California Elections Code requires that every ten years cities with by-district election systems use new census data to review and, if needed, redraw district lines to reflect how local populations have changed. The City Council at their April 12, 2022, City Council meeting adopted Ordinance No. 381 to adopt new district boundaries. Voters only vote for the City Council position up for election in their specified district.
