City of Cypress

The City of Cypress has announced a series of forums to discuss the potential of moving to single member districts and to “learn more about and discuss several important topics surrounding municipal elections.”

According to a message issued by Cypress Mayor Paulo Morales, “as the City Council prepares to deliberate any potential changes to the current election system, they want to hear community input and concerns to help with their decision making.”

The forums will be held in both virtual and in-person formats. We will provide an overview of current Voting Rights protections, at-large vs. district voting systems and a review of past city election results among other topics. In addition, materials will be made available online and in multiple languages to facilitate community participation.

To submit a question or comment you’d like addressed at a meeting, please email the city at cvraforum@cypressca.org by 5 PM the day before the public forum for it to be included in the agenda.
