 Trustee Elections / California Voting Rights Act

In 2018, Santa Barbara Unified School District voted to transition from at-large elections to trustee-area elections in accordance with the California Voting Rights Act. The act took effect on January 1, 2003. It prohibits the use of "at-large" elections when such an election system: "imparts the ability of a protected class to elect candidates of its choice or its ability to influence the outcome of an election...." (Elections Code 14027)

The map below was adopted by the Board of Trustees on February 8, 2022. (For those interested in seeing all of the map options prior to the election of the one below, please see this Google Map.
