District Elections: Map Selected

The City is proposing to change from at-large elections for City Council seats to a district-based electoral system. Our goal is to increase diversity on the City Council and protect the City against California Voting Rights Act lawsuits.

After seeking extensive input from the community about the number of districts and how to select the mayor, the City Council decided to place a ballot measure for six Council districts and a directly-elected, at-large mayor on the March 2020 election.

Over the summer, we launched a community-driven map drawing process to determine the six Council district boundaries for Sunnyvale elections in November 2020 (should the March 2020 ballot measure succeed). Through the fall we held meetings and pop-ups to comment on and refine the proposed maps. On Nov. 12, the City Council selected a final district map.
