Election Information

2020 Primary Election

The City of Carlsbad will hold a special election March 3 to fill the District 1 City Council seat vacancy created when Council Member Barbara Hamilton resigned Oct. 9.

2020 General Election

The next regular City Council election will take place in November 2020. With the city's transition to electing City Council members by district instead of "at large," voters who live in City Council districts two and four will each elect a City Council member. The mayor continues to serve "at large," meaning all voters in the city will have an opportunity to vote for that position every four years.
