Sunnyvale must re-draw its six Council district boundaries using new 2020 Census data. This process is called redistricting. All jurisdictions with district-based election systems, like Sunnyvale, must redistrict after each Census. This keeps population counts within each district relatively equal to ensure equal representation. Sunnyvale adopted district boundaries in 2019 using 2010 Census total population counts.

*Alternate Members may participate in all deliberations. They may vote only if they are filling in for an absent Commissioner. An Alternate from the same district will fill in for an absent Commissioner in the priority order listed above. If no Alternate from the same district is present, the Commission will follow the priority order listed above without regard to district.
In Phase 1, City Council established a public process for redistricting. Council decided to use the assistance of a Redistricting Commission made up of seven Sunnyvale residents. The Commission will propose three to five maps for Council consideration and approval.
Sunnyvale voters adopted a six-district Council election system with a directly-elected mayor on March 3, 2020 (see Measure B). Council placed Measure B on the ballot after a thorough community engagement process.
Community members designed the Council district map.
Voters in even districts elected a Council representative and all Sunnyvale voters elected the mayor in Nov. 2020.
Voters in odd districts will elect a Council representative in Nov. 2022 under the new district plan.
