Citizens Redistricting Commission
Meeting Summary for July 22-24

Sacramento, CA (July 24, 2011) --   


The California Citizens Redistricting Commission held meetings July 22-24 and took the following actions:

  • Completed all instruction to the technical line drawers for Congressional, Legislative and Board of Equalization districts.  The Commission will review these maps in its Thursday, July 28th meeting and vote on the maps the following day.
  • Voted to retain the law firms of Morrison & Forrester and Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher for any post map litiigation.
  • Adopted a plan to number State Senate districts to minimize the number of voters that are deferred. Odd numbered districts are up for election in 2012.  Voters whose representative's term expires in 2012 will not have an opportunity to vote for a senator if they are moved from an odd to an even district.  All voters will continue to be represented until their next opportunity to vote.

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.
