Apply by Jan. 22 to join a Citizen's Advisory Committee that will help the community take part in a process to change our electoral system for City councilmembers.
Sunnyvale voters currently elect their City councilmembers using an at-large electoral system. Recently, many cities in California have been challenged in court with allegations that their at-large election system violates the California Voting Rights Act (CVRA). For this reason, we are seeking to inform and engage our community on transitioning to an electoral system that meets the requirements of the CVRA, with the goal of sponsoring a ballot measure in 2020.
To help the community understand and participate in the process leading up to this change, the City is forming a Citizen's Advisory Committee (CAC).
Members will be responsible for:
The City Council will select up to nine Sunnyvale residents to serve on the CAC. If you are interested in serving in this important role, apply to join the CAC.
Applications are due Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2019 at 5 p.m.
