FIRE DISTRICT BY-DIVISION ELECTORAL PROJECT
The Fire District Board of Directors declared its intention to transition from an at-large to a by-division electoral system to comply with the California Rights Act (CVRA). The Fire District currently has an “at-large” electoral system where voters from the entire Fire District vote for all members of the Board of Directors. This is in contrast to a “by-division” electoral system where the jurisdiction is divided into smaller divisions and a candidate must reside within that division in order to be elected by voters residing within that division.
Fire district elections are managed by the San Bernardino County Registrar of Voter’s office. Elections are held in November of even years. Terms of office are four-year staggered terms.
The next election is scheduled for November 2022. Additional information can be obtained by contacting the San Bernardino County Registrar of Voter’s Office.
