NOTICE TO THE VOTERS OF THE CITY OF CUPERTINO
GENERAL MUNICIPAL ELECTION DATE CHANGE
On February 19, 2013 the City Council of the City of Cupertino adopted Ordinance No. 13-2106 changing the date of the City’s general municipal election from November odd-year to November even-year. On April 23, 2013 the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors approved City of Cupertino Ordinance No. 13-2106.
Beginning November 2014, the City of Cupertino General Municipal Election will be held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November of even-numbered years.
The reasons for this change are:
- The November date will allow the City of Cupertino to consolidate its election with the Statewide General Election which is held on the same date therefore resulting in a substantial cost savings.
- A majority of local governments in Santa Clara County would share the same election date.
Notice is hereby given pursuant to Elections Code section 10403.5 that:
(1) The next City of Cupertino General Municipal Election will be held on November 4, 2014.
(2) The terms of office of current City Council members will be extended twelve months to coincide with November 2014 and 2016 general municipal elections.
Questions can be directed to the City Clerk’s Department at 408-777-3223 or contact the City Clerk at email@example.com.
