LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – The California Citizens Redistricting Commission will hold a livestreamed event to share information about the work it will be doing this year to redraw local and state government representative boundaries.

The commission will host the “Redistricting Basics” presentation with a live question and answer period from 2 to 3 p.m. Tuesday, April 20.

Watch the livestream at under the “meetings” tab, where the commission’s regular meetings also can be viewed, and sign up to let them know you’re attending here.

Attend to find out about what redistricting is, fair representation and why it’s important, what factors the commission will consider when drawing the maps and how Californians can have a say in the process.

The commission was created by the VOTERS FIRST Act in 2008.

It uses Census data to redraw Congressional, State Senate, State Assembly and State Board of Equalization districts every 10 years so that the districts correctly reflect the state’s population.

In carrying out their work, commissioners must follow “strict, nonpartisan rules designed to create districts of relatively equal population that will provide fair representation for all Californians,” the commission website explains.

The 14-member commission, seated in 2020, is made up of five Republicans, five Democrats and four not affiliated with either of those two parties.
