California voters now have the new districts they will use to elect their members of Congress and state legislators after the California Citizen’s Redistricting Commission voted unanimously on Dec. 20 to approve its final maps.
Every 10 years, with the completion of a new census, California must redraw electoral district boundaries to ensure the state’s population is evenly distributed among them. It is the second time that California’s redrawing is being done by a 14-member independent commission.
On Monday January 3, 2022, the commission delivered California’s final congressional, State Senate, Assembly and Board of Equalization district maps to the California Secretary of State’s office in Sacramento. This was the deadline set by the California Supreme Court for the commission’s final maps which will next be sent to the state legislature. All 58 counties will then redraw precincts within the new district boundaries and assign voters to the updated precincts. Voters will be casting ballots for candidates running for office using the new district boundaries as part of California’s June 7, 2022, Primary Election. The new boundaries will be in effect for the next decade.
Slower population growth in California means the state lost one of its 53 U.S. House seats this year. To learn more about the California redistricting process and to see the complete list of final maps, visit the California Citizens Redistricting Commission website at wedrawthelinesca.org.
