Citizens Redistricting Commission
Continues Line Drawing of Districts - Urges Public to Tune In and Let Their Voices Be Heard

Sacramento, CA (July 14, 2011) -- 


In meetings today and yesterday, the California Citizens Redistricting Commission continued working with their technical line drawers in discussing and drawing Congressional and Legislative districts.
Yesterday the Commission launched an unprecedented interactive process where the public can easily view district visualizations online and submit written public comment in real time as the Commission meets.  Throughout the last two days Commissioners referred to the comment that they were receiving online during the meetings.
The Commission encourages the public to continue to view the visualizations and follow the line drawing meetings live online at and continue to submit their comments to [email protected].
The Commission also heard public testimony at their meetings this week from dozens of individuals from across the state.
Today the Commission gave directions for districts in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego Counties. The Commission will meet again this Friday and Saturday for line drawing sessions for Northern and Southern California.
The Commission will release final district maps on or before August 1st and vote on ratifying those maps on August 15th.

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.
