What is redistricting?
Every ten years, once the Census data is collected Counties must redraw the Supervisor district lines to rebalance the population. The lines are redrawn to ensure that each board member represents about the same number of constituents. For the County, the census data is expected on September 30, 2021, the process must be completed by December 15, 2021.
The redistricting process requires the line changes to meet the following criteria:
- Contiguity – share common border
- Geographic Integrity- minimize division of neighborhoods or communities
- City Integrity – minimize division of incorporated city boundaries
- Easily Identifiable boundary – such as a freeway or a river
- Compactness – not drawn for the purpose of favoring or discriminating against a political party.
How do I get more information?
How Can I get involved?
Assembly Bill 849 (2019) requires counties to engage communities in the redistricting process by holding public hearings. The County will seek input throughout the redistricting process. The public has the opportunity to share how the district boundaries should be drawn to best represent their local community.
