On January 11, 2024, the Palm Desert City Council unanimously adopted “Map 109 Renumbered B” as the official district boundaries for City Council. Elections for Districts 1, 2, and 3 will be held in November 2024, with Districts 4 and 5 following in December 2026 to complete the transition to five single-member districts. In the meantime, the incumbent councilmembers will continue to serve and complete their existing terms. Questions, please contact the Palm Desert City Clerk’s Office at cityclerk@palmdesert.gov or call (760) 346-0611.

The Redistricting Process

The City of Palm Desert is initiating a redistricting process to shift from the current two-district system to a new five-district system. The redistricting process will determine where the new City Council district lines will be drawn. The five new districts will impact how voters elect members of the City Council until the next redistricting process following the 2030 Census.

Our primary goal when developing election districts is to draw lines that respect neighborhoods, history and geographical elements. So we want to know: What do you consider the boundaries of your neighborhood?
