Under a district-based election system, the City would be divided into equally populated districts. Under a five-district system, for example, there would be five equally populated districts with a council-appointed rotating mayor. This would mean the five City Council Members pick one Council Member to serve as mayor for one year, after which the City Council picks a different Council Member to serve as mayor for another one-year term. A candidate must reside within an election district and is elected only by voters residing within that same election district.
