On August 5, 2021, Contra Costa County announced its Redistricting effort, a once-a-decade process of redrawing the boundaries for Supervisorial districts after the U.S. Census. As part of that process, the County’s first public hearing on Redistricting was held at 9 am on Tuesday, August 10, 2021.
Redistricting is the regular process of adjusting the lines of voting districts in response to accordance with population shifts within the County. Every ten years, supervisorial districts must be redrawn so that each district is substantially equal in population. This process is important in ensuring that each Supervisor represents about the same number of people. Redistricting is done using U.S. Census data, which is expected to be released by September 30, 2021.
“The Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors is committed to a robust Redistricting and public outreach process with public hearings, public workshops, and a website with resources, including online mapping tools,” said Board Chair, Supervisor Diane Burgis. “We will seek community input in selecting the next district map for supervisorial districts in our County and look forward to engaging the public in this important endeavor.”
