2020 Citizens Redistricting Commission

Shape California's Future

Slideshow

Sign-up below for up to date news about the selection process for the commission

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.
