Every ten years, after U.S. Census, California must redraw the boundaries of its Congressional, State Senate, State Assembly, and State Board of Equalization districts to reflect the new population data. The Voters FIRST Act gave this power to California citizens, ensuring that new and fair districts are drawn free of special interests, politics, or political influence
Redistricting has been used at times to exclude communities from political power. By fully participating in and monitoring the upcoming redistricting process, more communities may have the opportunity to elect candidates of their choice. Speaking up about your community is critical to help keep your community whole to the extent possible. This ensures that your voice is heard by your elected leaders when making decisions such as the quality and funding of your child’s education or determining your tax rates.
The California Citizens Redistricting Commission will be holding a public meeting and accept public comment, Monday, August 30, 2021, from 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM

This is your chance to become a part of creating fair and transparent district boundaries that serve the best interest of the people of California.
