Many communities have at-large elections; others have district-based elections. The City of Redlands is changing to a district-based system in accordance with the California Voting Rights Act of 2001 and growing concerns about challenges to at-large election systems throughout the State.

“District-based elections” are a method of electing members to the City Council in which each candidate must reside within a specified election district and is elected only by voters residing within that election district.
