On May 2, 2023, the City of Lomita City Council adopted Ordinance No. 848, implementing a by-district election system. A new district map was selected along with its election sequence: Districts 2 and 4 are up for election in 2024, and Districts 1, 3 and 5 are up for election in 2026. The City Council will continue to select the Mayor each year to serve a one-year term.
While the district formation process is complete, these pages remain live to serve as an archive of the election changes including the schedule, draft maps and resources.

Based on City Council feedback received at the March 21, 2023 public hearing, the City’s professional demographer produced map 4 as shown below.
