Board meetings are held on the first and third Wednesday of each month at 4:00 pm at the August A. Caires Customer Service Center in the boardroom located at:9300 Fanita Pkwy.Santee, CA 92071
Each director is elected for a term of four years, and assumes office at 12:00 noon on the first Friday in December following the election. The terms of office are staggered so that elections are held in November of each even-numbered year. Directors representing Divisions 2 and 4 are elected each leap year, and directors representing Divisions 1, 3 and 5 are elected in the intervening even-numbered election years. Individuals interested in serving on the Board of Directors are invited to visit the County of San Diego Registrar of Voters for the latest information on how to file as a candidate, including filing deadlines.
If no one has filed a declaration of candidacy within a division by the 83rd day before the election, the Board may request the County Board of Supervisors make an appointment prior to the last Monday before the last Friday in November in which the election is to be held; if only one person has filed a declaration of candidacy within a division, the County appoints that person for that division.
If a vacancy occurs the remaining Directors must appoint a qualified person from the division in which the vacancy occurs within 60 days of the vacancy. The person appointed to fill the vacancy will hold office until the next general district election, and until the person who is elected at that election to fill the remainder of the unexpired term has been qualified.
As an alternative to making an appointment, the remaining Directors may within 60 days of the vacancy call an election to fill the vacancy. If the Board neither fills the vacancy nor calls an election, the Board of Supervisors may fill the vacancy within 90 days of the date of the vacancy, or may order the District to call an election. If the Board of Supervisors fails to act, the District must call an election.
If a vacancy occurs the remaining Directors must appoint a qualified person from the division in which the vacancy occurs within 60 days after the vacancy. The person appointed to fill the vacancy shall fill the balance of the unexpired term of office.
