What are the eligibility requirements to run for Malibu City Council?
To hold any elective office within the City of Malibu, a person must be a United States citizen, 18 years of age or older, and be a registered voter of the City of Malibu at the time the nomination paper is issued. The City Clerk will not issue a nomination paper if the candidate is not a registered voter. (California Elections Code ["E.C."] §201.)


If an elected official moves his or her place of residence outside of the City limits or ceases to be an elector of the City during his or her term of office, the office of that elected official shall immediately become vacant. (California Government Code ["G.C."] §36502.)
