Important Information about the Upcoming Fremont City Council Elections

US Flag

This November, four Fremont City Council seats will be up for election on the General Municipal Ballot. Under Fremont’s new district-based election system, voters may elect candidates only from the district that they live in. Voters residing in District 1 (Northwest Fremont), District 2 (Central North Fremont), District 3 (Central Fremont), and District 4 (Eastern Fremont) will elect a City Councilmember to represent their district in the upcoming election. Information about the candidates is available on the City’s Election Info website.

Fremont residents can identify the district they live in by visiting the Council District Locator tool and plugging in a home address. This tool includes mapping layers of City and public safety facilities, public schools, shopping centers, and Alameda County voter precincts as reference points. In addition, the locator includes a link to designated polling places.

To vote in the election, you must be a U.S. citizen, at least 18 years old, a resident of Fremont, and neither in prison nor on parole for a felony conviction. Make sure you are registered at least 15 days before the election. Re-registration is required if you have moved since you last registered, changed your name, or changed your political party affiliation. For more information about voter registration, visit Secretary of State website. Polls open at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, November 6 and close at 8 p.m.

Those interested in learning more about how Fremont launched the process to convert elections from the at-large voting system to a district-based process can read more about our Elections Background.

For more information contact the City Clerk’s Office at 510-284-4060 or by e-mail.
