Board of Directors Seats for November 2022 Elections

Board Director Elections 2022 (Twitter)

In early 2022, Central Fire District of Santa Cruz County decided that the public interest would be best served by converting from an at-large based election system to a District-based electoral system. This new system divides our District into 5 separate geographic areas, where voters choose their representatives, who must also live in that District area. 

In the next upcoming elections in November 2022, there will be two open positions for Board Directors, for Regions 4 and 5 in our District. To view these regions (and look up your own address to see what region you are in), you can access our Interactive District Map.   

Our website has information on the roles of our Directors, including an outline of our current Board policies, election procedures, current Director contacts and more at our Board of Directors page.  The candidate submittal window for either of these Board Director offices is between July 18, 2022 and August 12, 2022. Early filing is highly recommended by the Elections Department. 

The Elections Department Website has information on requirements, deadlines, and online workshops for prospective candidates. For elections-related questions not on the website, you can also contact the County Clerk, Tricia Webber, at (831) 454-2409 or email
