Residents of West Hollywood who are interested in running for City Council should get in touch the City Clerk’s office to schedule an appointment to receive nomination papers and to review the requirements and deadlines for becoming an official candidate. The General Municipal Election will be held on Tuesday, March 5, 2019.

There are three City Council seats that will be determined in the upcoming election, where Councilmembers each serve a term of approximately four year — upcoming terms are for three years and eight months to allow for consolidation of elections with Los Angeles County — and are elected at large. Every year, city councilmembers select one of their members to serve as Mayor for a year, with the term beginning after the City Council reorganization, which occurs every year in April.
