Claremont is a general law city governed by a five-member City Council. Terms of office for City Councilmembers are staggered, with three members elected at one election, and two the next. General municipal elections occur on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November of even-numbered years.


The City Clerk serves as the local filing officer for the State of California, receiving all local candidate and campaign committee filings. Information, forms and manuals related to campaigns and committee formation are available on the Fair Political Practices Commission website.

Sample ballots, election results, and campaign filings are available in our Document Archive.
