General Municipal Election - November 6, 2018

The next General Municipal Election will be held Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2018, to elect three members of the City Council. These positions are elected by Mission Viejo citizens at large and are non-partisan. The terms of the Councilmembers are staggered and this year, City Council Members voted into office will serve a two-year term rather than the traditional four-year terms as a result of the City’s settlement with Southwest Voter Registration Education Project. Unless the City adopts district-based elections at some later date, all elections for City Council Members will be by cumulative voting beginning in November 2020.
