On November 5, 2013, Pasadenans voted to change the City Charter so there would be six single-member Council Districts A through F, and two at-large Council Districts G and H, representing Pasadena residents.
These changes will affect the usual manner in which voters are accustomed to voting in our city elections. For the first time in many years, every resident in the city will have three representatives serving on City Council.
On Saturday, May 9, 2015, the City of Pasadena will be holding its first election under the amended Charter provisions. That means that every registered voter will be able to vote for three City Council members: one who represents them individually in their district, and two representing the entire city in at-large positions (Districts G and H).
If you have any questions or need more information, please call the City Secretary's Office at (713) 475-5513.
