Election Procedures for Board Members
The Westborough Water District (District) resolved to change the way voters elect members of its Board of Directors by transitioning to zone-based elections. Previously, voters elected all five Board members through an at-large elections system. A zone-based elections system is one in which the District is divided into separate zones, each with one Board member who resides in that zone and is chosen by voters in that particular zone. Beginning in 2022, two of the District's Board members will be elected from zones, and the remaining Board members will be elected from zones in 2024.

For additional information on seeking office and the candidate application process, or to inquire about registration deadlines, please contact the San Mateo County Elections Office at (650) 312-5222 or visit smcacre.org.
Current law requires all candidates to file a Statement of Economic Interests (Form 700) with the county elections office where they file their declaration of candidacy. These forms can be found on the FPPC website fppc.ca.gov and are due by the final filing date for the declaration of candidacy.
