Council elections are held every even numbered year and are consolidated by Yolo County with other elections held on the same date. As part of the initial process, Council considers and adopts a Resolution to call for such an election and asks the County Board of Supervisors to direct the Elections Office to consolidate and conduct our election and provide services in relation to the Elections.
Elections are consolidated by the County, which substantially lessens the cost to the individual cities and the County to conduct elections. The first step in the process is to adopt a Resolution to call for the elections and request the services of the County in conducting the consolidated election. In keeping with the required deadlines as per election law and the needs of the County Election’s Office, the Board of Supervisors will be asked to take action at its next meeting to call for the election.
The Resolution is published in the local newspaper as well as the normal Agenda noticing requirements. A Notice of Election will also be posted in the newspaper to provide notice to any citizens wishing to run for Council.
The Yolo County Presidential Primary Election will take place on Tuesday, March 3, 2020.
February 3 is the First Day to vote-by-mail.

March 3 is Election Day! Polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Winters Community Center, 201 Railroad Avenue, Winters.
