The Marin Community College District (MCCD) Board of Trustees is changing the way Trustees will be elected.
In the past, Trustees were elected “at-large,” where each Trustee was elected by all voters throughout Marin County. Under the new system, Trustees will be elected by voters from within the area a Trustee would represent. Trustees will also be required to live in the area they are representing. This type of election, called a By-Trustee-Area election, is to ensure there is better representation for all communities who live within MCCD’s boundaries.
In following the California Voting Rights Act and the Elections and Education Codes, MCCD is holding two public hearings to explain how the redistricting process will work and hear from the community before the maps are drawn.
MCCD encourages the public to attend and give feedback at one of the two meetings or through MCCD’s redistricting webpage.
MCCD Public Redistricting Meetings will be held:
Tuesday, September 14, at 2 p.m.
Tuesday, September 28, at 5 p.m.
