As part of the decennial federal census, the District is required to review district lines. Redistricting Partners presented an overview of the process, provided a definition of redistricting, traditional redistricting practices, information on the Fair Maps Act of 2019, and preliminary 2020 census data for the District.

There are a number of redistricting criteria that have been used nationally and upheld by courts:

  • Relatively equal size – people, not citizens
  • Contiguous – districts should not hop/jump
  • Keep districts compact – appearance/function
  • Maintain “communities of interest”
  • Follow city/county/local government lines

The redistricting process timeline and hearing themes:

  • December 8, 2021 - Introduction of draft maps
  • January 12, 2022 - Draft map feedback
  • February 9, 2022 - Approval of final maps
  • February 28, 2022 - Final maps go to Los Angeles County Office of Education and then L.A. County Registrar-Recorder’s Office
