After extensive public outreach, five (5) public hearings and review of submitted maps from members of the public, the City Council adopted Ordinance No. 862-19, transitioning from at-large elections to District -Based Councilmember elections Pursuant to Elections Code Section 10010, and adopting District Map 105b2. The first district election was held on November 3, 2020, at which time voters elected Councilmember Gary Singh to represent District 1. Elections for districts 2,3 and 4 will be held in November, 2022.

Every 10 years , local governments use new census data to redraw their district lines to reflect how local populations have changed. Assembly Bill 849 (2019) requires cities and counties to engage communities in the redistricting process by holding public hearings and/or workshops and doing public  outreach, including to nonEnglish-speaking communities.  Following the results of the 2020 Census, Union City has begun the redistricting process.
