A General Municipal Election will be held in the City of Grand Terrace on Tuesday, November 3, 2020 to elect three (3) Council Members to a four-year term each.


The Official Candidate Filing Period begins July 13, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. and closes August 7, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. Please contact the City Clerk’s office to schedule an appointment between these hours to request and file candidate filing documents to run for office.


Prior to soliciting or receiving campaign contributions, a candidate must file Form 501, Candidate Intention Statement, with the City Clerk. The form is available at the City Clerk’s office or can be found online at http://www.fppc.ca.gov/content/dam/fppc/NS-Documents/TAD/Campaign%20Forms/501.pdf.


An officeholder or candidate who receives contributions totaling $2,000 within a calendar year qualifies as a recipient committee and must file a Form 410 with the Secretary of State within 10 days of qualifying.  When filing the Form 410, include a $50 payment made payable to the Secretary of State. If your committee has not yet reached the $2,000 threshold, mark the “not yet qualified” box. The $50 fee is requested at this time but is not legally required until the group qualifies as a committee. The form is available at the City Clerk’s office or can be found online at http://www.fppc.ca.gov/content/dam/fppc/NS-Documents/TAD/Campaign%20Forms/410.pdf.
