On April 12, 2022, the City of Fontana City Council adopted Resolution No. 2022-023 modifying the four (4) districts within Fontana. This was done through the redistricting process, required after the 2020 U.S. Census.
In 2017, the City of Fontana City Council passed two resolutions establishing and implementing by-district elections for City Council members.
The Fontana City Council adopted Ordinance 1767 establishing map 6 and election sequencing at its August 22, 2017 meeting. Voting by district to commence:
District 1 - November 2018
District 2 - November 2020
District 3 - November 2020
District 4 - November 2018
This means that starting in November 2018, individuals that reside in districts 1 and 4 would only be able to vote for one city council seat to represent their district, in contrast to the at-large system that allowed voters to vote for all seats up for election. The mayor, city clerk, and treasurer will continue to be elected at large.
