Conducting Elections

The City Clerk is the elections official for the City of Winters, responsible for conducting municipal elections and provides election support to officeholders, candidates, and ballot measure proponents and opponents.
The City Council recently adopted Ordinance 2021-05 changing the date of the City of Winters’ regular General Municipal Election from the Statewide Direct Primary Election date to the Statewide General Election date beginning November 2022.

  •  Members of the City Council whose terms would have expired in June 2022 shall continue in office until the election results are certified and declared by Yolo County and the Winters City Council for the November 2022 election.
  • Members of the City Council whose terms would have expired in March 2024 shall continue in office until the election results are certified and declared by Yolo County and the Winters City Council for the November 2024 election

The City Council is comprised of five elected councilmembers with staggered four-year terms. There is no limit to the number of terms an individual can serve on the City Council.
The next general municipal election will be held on Tuesday, November 8, 2022 for the election of three city council seats.

Ballot Measures

Measures qualify for the ballot in a variety of ways pursuant to California Elections Code Division 9, Chapter 3. A measure can be placed on the ballot by the legislative body (i.e. City Council) or by qualified citizen initiative petition. The initiative petition process is detailed in California Elections Code Section 9200 and 9600.

The legislative body (i.e. City Council), any individual voter who is eligible to vote on the measure, a bona fide association of citizens, or any combination of these voters and associations may file a written Argument In Favor or Against any measure placed on the ballot by the governing body or by initiative.

Measures qualified for the ballot are published in the Voter Information Guide and mailed to registered voters in the city who are eligible to vote.
