The City of Patterson recently changed they way that the citizens vote for the City Council. Instead of each citizen voting for all 4 council seats the City has changed to District Elections. If you live in ZONE 1 you can vote for candidates that live and are running for council in ZONE 1.
City Council members have a term of 4 years. In the November election only Districts 1 and 3 are up for re-election. The Mayor’s seat is also up for re-election. The term of the Mayor is only 2 years so you will still be able to vote for Mayor every 2 years.
