What is Redistricting?
Redistricting is the redrawing or adjusting of electoral district boundaries following the federal Census to account for population shifts and growth during the previous decade. The redistricting process is governed by the U.S. Constitution, State and Federal law.
What is the County of Ventura's role in redistricting? California Elections Code § 21500 requires the County Board of Supervisors to adjust the Supervisorial district boundaries every ten years following the federal Census so that the districts are as "nearly equal in population as may be" and comply with the Voting Rights Act. This year, the Board of Supervisors is required to redistrict the five Supervisorial districts using Census data. The County’s redistricting process will include broad opportunity for public review and input.


What difference does County redistricting make to residents of the region?
 Redistricting will determine the boundaries of Ventura County’s five Supervisor-represented districts - so everyone living in the County has a stake in the process. Any adjustments will determine the supervisor district within which a citizen votes, beginning with elections. At the County, the redistricting task relates only to creating districts where residents will vote for individuals to represent them on the Ventura County Board of Supervisors. The County does not reapportion congressional seats, adjust other electoral district boundaries or allocate federal funding for local programs.

Do County residents have a voice in redistricting?
 Yes. All members of the public are encouraged to share their views about County redistricting at any of the public hearings held by the Board of Supervisors. The Board is interested in receiving broad public input on the redistricting process. Members of the public may submit comments or even their own proposed redistricting plans. Ultimately, public input at the meetings will help the Board develop its final redistricting plan.

     mental health care disparities, the drop-out rate, affordable
     college education, black and brown issues., the list goes
     on and on and is all inner-connected.
