The Arrowbear Park County Water District is governed by a Board of 5 Directors, each of whom, whether elected or appointed, shall be a “voter of the District” and be a “resident of the District” and the term “residence” defined in the Elections Code, at Section 349, is the person’s “domicile.” Every 2 years there is an election held (at the same time as the General Election in November) for the community to select who will represent them on the Board. This year, 2018, there are 2 seats available. Residents who are interested in running for these seats should review the following requirements and deadlines.

In order to run for a Director position on the Board, individuals need to:
