Elections & Voter Information

Upcoming Election:

The next regularly scheduled General Municipal Election will be held in June 5, 2018 where the voters of the Town of Corte Madera will elect three members to the Town Council (please note that the Town Council also sits as the Board of Directors for Sanitary District #2 - more information on the Sanitary District can be found here).  

At the June 20, 2017 Town Council meeting, the Corte Madera Town Council voted to adopt Ordinance 966, which moves the Town’s municipal election from November of odd-numbered years to June of even-numbered years, beginning with the election in June 2018. Councilmembers with seats expiring in November 2017 have been extended six months, through June 2018. This change only affects the November 2017 election at this time.  Please refer to Ordinance 966, An Ordinance of the Town of Corte Madera Amending Title 2 Chapter 2.38 of the Corte Madera Municipal Code, "General Municipal Elections" for more information: Ordinance 966.

The nomination filing period will open in mid-February, 2018 and will run through mid-March. Appropriate information will be posted below when the filing period draws close.
