1850–1889 (Common Council)
Los Angeles was governed by a seven-member Common Council under general state law from 1850 to 1889, when a city charter was put into effect.
1889–1909 (nine wards)
Under the first charter of the city, granted by the Legislature in 1889, the city was divided into nine wards, with a councilman elected from each one by plurality vote. The first election under that system was held on February 21, 1889, and the last on December 4, 1906.
Two-year terms for the City Council began and ended in December, except for the first term, which started in February 1889 and ended in December 1890. The term of office was lengthened to three years effective with the municipal election of December 4, 1906, which was the last year this ward system was in use.
