Meeting Summary

Sacramento, CA (July 3, 2011) -- 


The California Citizens Redistricting Commission took the following actions in its business meeting today:

  • In the case of drawing the second draft maps and the final maps for the state Assembly, state Senate, and Board of Equalization, the Commission directs its technical line drawers to achieve reasonably equal population with other districts for the same office by maintaining a total population deviation of no more than 2%, except where deviation is required to comply with the federal Voting Rights Act or allowable by law.

California's first Citizens Redistricting Commission is a new 14-member Commission charged with redrawing California's Senate, Assembly, State Board of Equalization, and Congressional districts based on information gathered during the 2010 census. The Commission must draw the State Senate, Assembly, State Board of Equalization, and Congressional districts in conformity with strict, nonpartisan rules designed to create districts of relatively equal population that will provide fair representation for all Californians.
