2020 Citizens Redistricting Commission

Shape California's Future


Be A Part Of Creating Real Change In California

Every ten years, after the federal census, California must re-establish the boundaries of its Congressional, State Senate, State Assembly, and State Board of Equalization districts to reflect new population data and shifting populations. The Voters FIRST Act gave this power to California citizens ensuring that new and fair political boundaries are drawn without special interests, politics and political influence.

California citizens who are eligible may submit an application to the California State Auditor’s Office during the initial 60-day application period from June 10, 2019, to August 9, 2019.

This is your chance to become a part of creating fair and transparent district boundaries that serve the best interests of the people of California. If you believe politics are better when all sides work together and you have a passion for civic engagement, apply to become one of 14 new 2020 commissioners.

The California State Auditor randomly selected the names of the members and alternate members of the Applicant Review Panel (panel) for the selection process for the 2020 Citizens Redistricting Commission (Commission).

The panel will review the application materials submitted by Californians interested in serving on the 2020 Commission and identifying 60 of the most qualified applicants to serve on the 2020 Commission who will redraw the Congressional and State district lines.

The panel members were randomly selected from a group of employees at the California State Auditor's Office who have at least 10 years of independent auditing experience. As the law requires, the completed panel consists of one Democrat, one Republican and one who is either registered without, or "independent" of, any political party (decline-to-state or no party preference) or with another party.
