The Final Map is a result of the Board of Supervisors’ direction on revisions to the earlier draft maps presented at its Nov. 2, 16 and 17 Board meetings, as well as public input.
Following the Nov. 17 Board meeting, at which the Board approved the Final Draft Map
, Sacramento County’s Geographic Information System (GIS) team worked with National Demographics Corporation (NDC), the County’s redistricting consultant, to proof the district lines suggested by the Board. They also compared it to the district lines, Census blocks and legal boundary descriptions for all jurisdictions in Sacramento County, including cities.
Additionally, the County offers several district lookup tools and online maps
. Because those tools use different source data, the County is coordinating the update to the tools simultaneously in order to provide consistency among the tools. The update will be completed in January 2022.
Every ten years, following the Census count, the resulting census data is used to geographically define electoral districts, at all levels of government, through a process called redistricting. Redistricting ensures that each of the electoral district boundaries have about the same number of people and comply with the Federal Voting Rights Act of 1965.
