The City of Oceanside will begin the transition to District Elections in November 2018. Five community workshops were held in 2017 to determine the district boundaries, and the Oceanside City Council approved the final map at the August 1, 2017 City Council meeting. Candidates running for City Council will now be required to reside in the district they want to represent.
Districts will be phased-in during the next two election cycles. Councilmembers in Districts 1 and 2 will be elected in November 2018. Councilmembers in Districts 3 and 4 will be elected in 2020. Find your district here: https://www.ci.oceanside.ca.us/gov/clerk/elections/districtelections.asp
After the 2020 election, the City Council will be comprised of four City Council Members, each of whom reside in one of the established Districts, and one Mayor, who will remain elected at-large. The Mayor and City Council Members serve 4-Year terms.
