BACKGROUND: The United States Constitution requires a count every ten (10) years of everyone residing in the United States. Census data is used for geographically defining state legislative districts in the year following a census. At the conclusion of each United States of America Census process, the County must conduct a process to analyze population data in order to redraw district boundaries to ensure that districts are substantially equal in population as required by the United States Constitution and in compliance with the federal Voting Rights Act of 1965.
State Assembly Bill 849 (2019) requires cities and counties to engage communities in the redistricting process by holding public hearings and/or workshops and doing public outreach.
The County created a dedicated redistricting webpage with basic information and how the public can get involved.
The workshop will be recorded and the recording will be available to the public on the webpage within two weeks after the public workshop. This is the second in a series of public workshops to inform the community and to receive public input on the redistricting process. There are two more public workshops scheduled for October 14, 2021 and November 3, 2021.
Providing safe, healthy and vibrant communities; respecting our natural resources and historical heritage.
