General Municipal Elections are conducted in the City of Newport Beach in November of even-numbered years. The next General Municipal Election is scheduled to take place on November 3, 2020 for purposes of filling seats on the City Council for a four-year term.
2020 Election Update:
On February 26, 2019, the Orange County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to change the County’s voting system by eliminating precinct polling locations, replacing them with vote centers, and automatically sending every registered voter a mail ballot beginning in 2020. The agenda item can be found here, but in summary, the action approved the implementation of the Voter’s Choice Act (Senate Bill 450) for future elections in Orange County through the use of 188 vote center locations throughout Orange County (38 sites, operating for 11 days and 150 sites, operating for 4 days).
