One month left to apply to serve on the statewide redistricting commission

Posted on July 8, 2019 at 4:44 pm by Peter Ibrahim

Every 10 years, after the federal census, California must re-establish the boundaries of its Congressional, State Senate, State Assembly and State Board of Equalization districts to reflect new population data and shifting populations. The Voters FIRST Act gave this power to California citizens ensuring that new and fair political boundaries are drawn without special interests, politics and political influence.

Eligible California citizens may submit an application to the California State Auditor’s Office during the initial 60-day application period from June 10–August 9, 2019.

This is your chance to become a part of creating fair and transparent district boundaries that serve the best interests of the people of California. If you believe politics are better when all sides work together and you have a passion for civic engagement, apply to become one of 14 new 2020 commissioners.
