Proposed Maps for Oxnard City Council Election Districts Available for Viewing

Oxnard, California​ – Draft maps for Oxnard City Council election districts have been released to the public and can be viewed on the city’s website: Of the 65 maps that were submitted by residents, 38 of them have been qualified by the demographer for further consideration by the City Council because the maps contain four, six or eight districts, and the districts in the draft maps are contiguous and population balanced. In addition, the demographer has prepared two maps that will also be presented to the City
Council for its consideration.

The Oxnard City Council will first consider the draft maps at a public hearing scheduled for Jan. 17, at 6 p.m., City Council Chambers, 305 W. Third Street, Oxnard. The City Council will also hold additional public hearings to consider the draft maps.

In November 2017, the Oxnard City Council adopted a resolution declaring its intent to consider transitioning to district-based elections, which would enable city voters to elect a council member who lives in their district. The city presently uses an at-large voting system, in which four council members and the mayor aer elected by registered voters of the entire city. Under a  district election system, the city would be divided into separate districts, with each district electing a council member from that district. The mayor position would continue to be elected on an at-large basis.

Information on the process, including future public hearing dates, is available in English and Spanish on the city website: For more information, contact Michelle Ascencion at [email protected] or at 805-385-7803.
