District Elections

Help Draw the Future for Stanton

The City of Stanton is working to comply with the California Voting Rights Act of 2001.  Beginning with the November 2018 elections, Stanton voters will start to elect members of the City Council from geographically defined districts, rather than through a citywide at-large voting process.

The City is seeking input from the community to help draw the future council districts in Stanton.  The results of this input process would be the creation of a number of distinct voting districts.  Candidates living within each of the different districts would then run for election, and residents will vote for a candidate within their district.  This will allow for each district to have representation on the City Council, providing a representative advocating for each district within the city.

This page will provide access to all things related to the district based elections mapping process including, but not limited to, notices of all public meetings, public notices, press release, agenda reports, maps and supporting documents.

Should you have any questions, please contact the City Clerk's Office at (714) 890-4245 or via e-mail at pvazquez@ci.stanton.ca.us.

How to Get Involved

Share your thoughts at a Meeting
As with any issue before the City Council, you can attend a forum, testify at a hearing, and / or encourage the Council to vote yes or no on any part of this process by simply coming to any of the public meetings on this topic.
Share your thoughts in Writing
You do not have to wait for a meeting to weigh in: you can call, e-mail or write to the Council with your thoughts at any time:
        Stanton City Clerk
        7800 Katella Avenue
        Stanton, CA 90680
        Phone: (714) 890-4245
        Fax: (714) 890-1443
        E-mail: pvazquez@ci.stanton.ca.us

Any thoughts you share with the City Clerk will be shared with the City's demographic consultant and with the entire City Council.
Draw your own Map
Districting is an unusual issue: instead of simply urging the Council to vote yes or no on a given map, with Districting you can take the next step and draw and submit your own preferred map for the Council to consider.  Every map received, in any format, will be processed by the City's demographic consultant and presented to the Council, complete with professional map and full demographic analysis, for its consideration.
Ask your Questions
The City Clerk is available to answer any questions you have about the process; the schedule; the draft plans; or how to draw your own plan. You can reach the City Clerk using the contact information provided above under “Share your thoughts in Writing”.
