On June 19, 2018, the Torrance City Council adopted an ordinance establishing by-district elections for City Council offices and approved an election calendar for the newly created districts. Previously, each Councilmember was elected for a “At-Large” 4-Year term which means they serve in an “At-large” capacity and are allowed to live anywhere in the City of Torrance. However, when their 4-Year term expires, they will be required to live within the boundaries of the district that is on the ballot during that election in order for them to be able to run for a 4-Year term to that City Council district seat. The districts will be phased in during the next two election cycles – Districts 2, 4, and 6 will be introduced in 2020 and Districts 1, 3, and 5 will be introduced in 2022. After all of the districts have been introduced, the City Council will be comprised of six Councilmembers who each live in and represent one of the established districts and one Mayor, who will remain elected “At-Large”.
