ARROYO GRANDE, CALIFORNIA - The City of Arroyo Grande encourages all registered voters in Arroyo Grande to vote in the November 8th General Municipal Election. This year’s election will fill a total of three seats on the City Council - one (1) seat for District 1 City Council Member, one (1) seat for District 4 City Council Member, and one (1) seat for directly-elected Mayor. The District 1 and 4 representatives will serve four-year terms and the Mayor will serve a two-year term. Voters will also have the opportunity to vote on the proposed 1% Transaction & Use (Sales Tax) Measure, Measure D-22, which the City Council voted unanimously to present to the voters for consideration on the November 8th ballot. Information regarding Measure D-22 is available at MeasureD22.org, including information about the identified need for the funding for street repair, sidewalks, stormwater infrastructure, and other City programs.
The November 8th election will be the City’s first using a district-based system for election of the City Council. Voters will now vote for one City Council Member who lives in their district and for the Mayor. This replaces the previous system of at-large citywide elections in which voters had the ability to vote for all City Council Members. The Council seats for Districts 1 and 4 are up for election in 2022. The Mayor will continue to be elected at-large.
Voter Information Guides are available on the San Luis Obispo County Clerk-Recorder’s website here.
