Update

As of the filing deadline for City of San Rafael elected official candidates, only incumbents filed for the seats up for re-election. In this case, the Election Code allows for nominating and appointing incumbents should the City Council wish not to hold an election. At the Council meeting on August 17, 2015, the City Council adopted a resolution cancelling the City of San Rafael election and appointing the incumbent candidates to the open offices to serve  exactly as if they had been elected, starting their new term in early December, 2015.
