The City Clerk is a Certified Municipal Clerk who serves as the City's Elections Official responsible for meeting the legal requirements in conducting an election and provides assistance to candidates in meeting their legal responsibilities when running for office.
MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL
The City Council consists of 5 members: Council Members for District #1, #2, #3, and #4, who are elected by-district, and the Mayor is elected at-large (citywide). Elections occur during staggered even years, which coincides with the Statewide General Elections. For cost-savings, the City of Riverbank may consolidate its municipal elections with the statewide elections and contract with the Stanislaus County Registrar of Voters/Elections, for election services. Who are your Council Members?
MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS ARE DISTRICT BASED
The City of Riverbank has fully transitioned to a "by-district" electoral system (Map G - Districts) to fill the seats of the four Councilmembers. This means that only Riverbank registered voters that live within the respective boundary of the District that is up for election may run as a candidate for office and may cast a vote for the nominated Candidate in that particular District. The Mayor's seat continues to be elected citywide; therefore, any registered voter of the City of Riverbank may run for this office.
