At the November 5, 2013 General Municipal Election in Sunnyvale, voters approved Ballot Measure A, a charter amendment to change City elections from being held in November of odd-numbered years to being held in November of even-numbered years. The charter amendment provides that the next municipal election for City Council Members will be held in November 2016.

To facilitate the change from odd-year elections to even-year elections, the charter amendment authorized a one-time extension of one year to current Councilmembers’ terms.
