On May 8, 2018, the Antioch City Council voted to approve Ordinance No.2141-C-S to adopt by-district elections. The ordinance changes the election system in the City of Antioch from at-large to by-district elections for the City Council. This means that City Council members must live in the districts they represent, and will be elected by the voters in those districts starting with the 2020 election. In 2020, districts 1 and 4 will elect council members for initial two year terms. These districts will be up for reelection again in 2022, and after that every four years. Districts 2 and 3 will elect members for four year terms in 2020 and continue to do so every four years thereafter. This is done to preserve staggered elections, i.e. to ensure that two seats are open every two years. The mayor’s position is not affected by district elections and will continue to be elected at-large, by all registered voters in Antioch.
The City would like to thank everyone who participated in the districting process!
The district descriptions are below:
