The Lake Arrowhead Community Services District is governed by a locally elected Board of Directors consisting of 5 individuals that are registered to vote within the District’s boundaries. In 2018, two changes were made to the District’s elections: (1) The date of the election was changed to a general election in an even year and; (2) The District changed from an at-large to a district-based election, meaning each Director represents a specific geography within the District.

CHANGE OF ELECTION DATE
SB 415, effective January 1, 2018 required public agencies to change their election date to coincide with the Statewide General Election to improve voter turnout.
On February 28, 2017, Lake Arrowhead Community Services District Board of Directors adopted Resolution No. 2017-03 moving board member elections from odd-numbered years to even-numbered years. The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors approved the change and as a result, current board member terms were extended by one year. The next election date is November 3, 2020.
A candidate must be a registered voter residing within the specific district they would represent. Individuals interested in serving on the Board of Directors are invited to visit the San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters for the latest information on how to file as a candidate, including filing deadlines.
The San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters announces it will offer contract-free services to candidates with a new My Candidacy Gateway web application and video conference appointments. Registrar of Voters Press Release.
