Election



Vote Picture

In June, the Selma City Council approved Resolution No. 2024-64R calling for the City’s General Municipal Election to be held on November 5, 2024,  for the election of one District 1 Council seat and one District 4 Council seat; each for a four-year term through November 2028, as well as one at-large Mayor seat for a two-year term through November 2026.

The period for filing nomination papers for the office of City Council is July 15, 2024, through August 9, 2024. If an eligible incumbent fails to file by Friday, August 9, 2024, the filing period is automatically extended five (5) days to Wednesday, August 14, 2024, for others to file. The extension does not apply to incumbents; the last day to file for an incumbent is August 9, 2024.

A general municipal election is held every two years.  The two seats available for the November 2024 election are currently held by District No. 1 Councilmember Mendoza-Navarro, District No. 4 Mayor Pro Tem Beverly Cho, and at-large Mayor Robertson.

The Selma City Council meets on the first and third Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m.  In addition to the regularly scheduled Council meetings, Councilmembers will generally spend time reviewing material in preparation for the meetings, and attend special meetings as required. 

The Selma Municipal Code provides that Councilmembers, including the Mayor, receive a stipend of $300/month,  paid biweekly through regular City payroll. At their option, they can participate in the city’s health insurance program, in the same manner as regular employees.  Additionally, the Mayor receives a $30/month cell phone stipend, and all Councilmembers, including the Mayor, receive a laptop or tablet during their term.  Expenses for city related business (i.e. meetings, conference attendance, League division dinners, etc.) are covered by the City pursuant to the Council Travel Policy.
