Transition to By-Division Elections

The District is an independent public agency, governed by a five-person Board of Directors. In the past, the Directors have been elected “At Large” from the District’s electorate and served a four year term. Effective 12/31/2023, the District transitioned from “At-large” to District Based elections whereby each Board Member serves a specific area within the District as more specifically identified in the map here. The election of Board Members is governed by the California Elections Code. For further information on elections, please visit the Contra Costa County Election Department website.

The California Election Code currently requires general district elections to choose a successor for each elective officer whose term will expire on the first Friday in December following the election to be held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November in each even-numbered year. In the event of a mid-term vacancy on the Board of Directors the District fills the vacancy in accordance with the provisions of California Government Code 1780.
