The following information is provided as an overview of the election process for a seat on the City Council of the City of San Marino.
Historically, the City of San Marino has conducted its General Municipal Election in November of odd-numbered years (set by Ordinance No. O-10-1239). Elections are consolidated with the county and are held on the first Tuesday, following the first Monday in November of odd numbered years. Terms are staggered so that three seats are available during one election cycle and two seats are available during the next cycle. Note: After the November 2019 election, the City of San Marino will switch to even-year elections to follow a new state law that requires us to align our local elections with the State of California. Because of this, Council Members elected in 2017 and 2019 are serving 5-year terms, with our next election to be held in 2022.

Please note that the previous polling place of San Marino City Hall has been replaced with the San Marino High School Auditorium due to the need for more space for new voting equipment. For more information or questions, please contact the City Clerk at (626) 300-0705.
