On November 6, 2018 city voters will select two members of the community to serve on the Roseville City Council.

Mayor Susan Rohan and Councilmember Tim Herman are not eligible for the 2018 election as the Roseville Charter stipulates that no member shall serve more than two (2) consecutive four (4) year terms, and both Rohan and Herman have served two consecutive terms.

A prospective candidate for City Council must be a Roseville resident who is at least 18 years of age and be a registered voter in the City of Roseville.

Roseville citizens who are interested in running for office must abide by campaign limitations referenced in Chapters 2.60, 2.80 and 2.90 of the Roseville Municipal Code, or at the Roseville City Clerk Department at 311 Vernon Street.

Before accepting any contribution, a candidate must file a “2018 Statement of Acceptance or Rejection of Limit on Campaign Expenditures” with the Roseville City Clerk, either accepting or rejecting the campaign expenditure limit. The expenditure limit for the November 2018 election is $113,211.00. The campaign finance contribution period opens Tuesday, February 6, 2018 and ends on Monday, December 31, 2018.

A candidate who accepts the expenditure limit may accept contributions of up to $500.00 from any single source. A candidate who rejects the expenditure limit may accept contributions of up to $250.00 from any single source.  The contribution limit is cumulative for all contributions from a single source between Tuesday, February 6, 2018 and Monday, December 31, 2018.  No fundraising may occur outside the stipulated time periods.

The official nomination period opens Monday, July 16, 2018 and runs through Friday, August 10, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. This is the time frame in which candidates must file their official nomination paperwork with the City Clerk in order to appear on the ballot.

Prospective candidates must set an appointment to file the required documents by calling the Roseville City Clerk Department at 916-774-5263.

Councilmember duties include, but are not limited to, extensive time to review the material to be considered at Council meetings and serving on auxiliary boards, committees, and or commissions associated with Roseville, the Placer region, and the greater Sacramento area.

Councilmember compensation is six hundred dollars ($600) per month and the Mayor receives ($650) per month.  Councilmembers may, upon order of the City Council, be reimbursed for reasonable and necessary expenses incurred while performing representative services of the City of Roseville.
