2020 Citizens Redistricting Commission

Shape California's Future


Supplemental Application Period Extended—New Deadline is October 20

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.

Due to the unprecedented power outages, we have extended the application period one more week to ensure all applicants have the opportunity to submit their applicant materials by the deadline. Applicants now have until Sunday, October 20, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. to submit their applications and letters of recommendation.
