Drawing the political lines for the Board of Supervisors

Did you know?

The County of Orange Board of Supervisors is required to adjust the boundaries of Supervisorial Districts following the decennial federal census, using that census as a basis, pursuant to California Elections Code Section 21500. The County has established a Redistricting Committee to consider public input on proposed changes to the boundaries of Supervisorial Districts and to make recommendations to the Board of Supervisors.

The Redistricting Committee has set meetings at 2 p.m. in the Board of Supervisors Hearing Room, 333 W. Santa Ana Blvd., 10 Civic Center Plaza, Santa Ana, on the second Thursday of each month through July 14, 2011, if necessary.

If you would like further information on the Redistricting Committee, please contact the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors, attn: Jamie Ross, 333 W. Santa Ana Blvd., 10 Civic Center Plaza, Room 465, Santa Ana, CA 92701, 714-834-2206, or email jamie.ross@ocgov.com. Meeting agendas are available at the website for the Redistricting Committee: http://egov.ocgov.com/ocgov/Government/Redistricting.

Information about the requirements for submitting Redistricting plans and the resources available to assist in developing a plan is also available on the County’s website at http://egov.ocgov.com/ocgov/Government/Redistricting. Computer workstations with the software needed to create a Redistricting plan are available at 35 locations throughout Orange County. A map of these sites is posted on the Redistricting webpage.

    the county should be divided like a pie, with each district getting a piece of DownTown Orange County.
