Election & Voter Information
General Municipal Elections are held in the City of Baldwin Park on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November of odd-numbered years. Other municipal elections or special elections may be called from time to time by the City Council.
In an effort to provide convenience for the voters and to lower costs, in 2004, the City Council voted to consolidate the city's General Municipal Elections with the County's Union District Election Law (UDEL) election.
The City Council is made up of a Mayor and four Councilmembers, for a total of five people. These positions are elected by Baldwin Park citizens at large, and elections are held every two years. The offices of Mayor and City Council are non-partisan.
The Mayor serves a term of two years, while City Councilmembers each serve a term of four years.
Elective Office Candidate Qualifications: The only requirement for candidates seeking elective office is that they must be an electorate. An electorate means any person who is a United States citizen, 18 years of age or older, and a resident of an election precinct in the City at least 15 days prior to the election.
