District Elections

What do District Elections mean for Lake Forest?

Beginning with the November 2018 election, Lake Forest will elect members of the
City Council from individual districts, instead of by citywide vote. 

Upcoming Workshops

The City Council is asking for your help with this transition. You can draw a full citywide map of proposed districts; request only one district around your neighborhood; or share your thoughts on which plan you think the Council should approve. The City will hold four public hearings and two community workshops for residents to learn about the district election process, give input, and submit their own maps for Council’s consideration.
