On June 24, 2020, MSWD adopted Ordinance No. 2020-2, establishing the election of members of the Board of Directors by five divisions, establishing the boundaries and identification number of each division, and establishing the election order of each division.

The Adoption of the Ordinance was the final step in the transition to by-division elections as per the California Voting Rights Act (CVRA) process. Map 2 with five divisions has been approved by the MSWD Board of Directors and the County Registrar of Voters.

MSWD currently has an at-large system allowing customers to elect all five members of the Board of Directors. Elections by division - also referred to as districts - apportions the service area into five divisions with customers voting only for candidates from within their own division.

Three of the five divisions will be up for election in November 2020. Those are Divisions 2, 3, and 4. The remaining seats, Divisions 1 and 5, will be up for election in 2022.
