upcoming elections 2018


The City Council consists of 5 members: Council Members for District #1, #2, #3, and #4, who are elected by-district (View Boundary Map G), and the Mayor is elected at-large (city-wide).  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.


This year's Municipal Elections will be to fill (1) Councilmember seat for District-1 and (1) Councilmember seat for District-3.  Only Riverbank registered voters that live within the boundaries of the District may run as a Candidate for that respective District seat, and may cast their vote for the Candidate(s).  If you are unable to determine by Map G whether you live within the boundary of a District, please contact the Stanislaus County Registrar of Voters/Elections to assist you. Also on the ballot for citywide voting will be Measure "B" (see below for more information).

Measure "B" - Cannabis Business License Tax

 If the City's voters approve Measure B, the City Council will be authorized to impose a business license tax on cannabis businesses (entities engaged in the commercial cultivation, distribution, and exchange of cannabis whether for medical or non-medical reasons) that are operating in the City.  Measure B also authorizes the City Manager to establish procedures for collecting tax, and authorizes the Finance Director to audit any business engaged in commercial cannabis activity.
