Elections

The City Clerk 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: Councilmembers for District #1, #2, #3, and #4, to be elected by-district and the Mayor to be elected at-large.  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. 
  
BY-DISTRICT ELECTORAL SYSTEM
In response to concerns of legal challenges under the California Voting Rights Act of 2001, the City of Riverbank City Council transitioned the City's electoral system from an "at-large" (city wide voting and candidacy) system to a "by-district" (voting and candidacy within a specific geographical boundary (District)) system.  The City is now comprised of four (4) district boundaries (See District Boundary Map) for the election of four (4) Councilmembers by district; the Mayor's seat continues to be elected at-large.
