Elections / FPPC Reporting Program
The City Clerk is the City’s Election Official. As such the department is responsible for the conduct of all municipal elections, both general and special, and the dissemination of election information and Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) information and reporting; coordination with the California Secretary of State, and San Diego Registrar of Voters.
It is through the Elections Program that prospective candidates for City office receive their nomination papers, submit candidate statements and file the mandated economic reporting forms. The General Municipal Elections are held in November of even numbered years and Special Municipal Elections as they may occur. A Candidate’s Handbook is created and published to assist those citizens who become candidates for City Council, City Clerk or City Treasurer.
This program also administers and tracks all Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) reporting. This includes various candidate and political action committee reporting forms and statements of economic interests required from designated City employees and advisory groups.
