The second draft map is a result of the Board of Supervisors’ direction on possible revisions to the draft maps at its Nov. 2 Board meeting, as well as the public’s input.
The County is encouraging all interested stakeholders to provide their input on this draft map in any of the following ways:
Upcoming Board Meetings/Workshops
- November 16, 6:05 p.m. Board of Supervisors Meeting (Second Round Draft Map)
- November 17, 2 p.m., Board of Supervisors Meeting (Second Round Draft Map)
- December 7, 2 p.m., Board of Supervisors Meeting (Final Adoption of Map)
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.
Redistricting is important because it determines which neighborhoods and communities will be grouped together for the purposes of electing a Board member.
