County’s Redistricting Commission to Hold Informational Meetings

San Diego County Supervisorial Districts Map

The San Diego County Independent Redistricting Commission (IRC) will hold a series of virtual meetings on why redistricting matters in San Diego County.

Redistricting takes place every 10 years and uses U.S. Census data to ensure each supervisorial district contains roughly the same number of people. Boundary lines can also shape a community’s ability to elect the representative of their choice.

Commissioners from each of the County’s five supervisorial districts will give the informational presentations. Everyone is welcome to attend any or all of the virtual meetings.

The IRC Education Tour meetings take place:

  • June 3 from 12:00-1:00 pm (District 5)
  • June 8 from 6:00-7:00 pm (District 4)
  • June 16 from 4:00-5:00 pm (District 1)
  • June 23 from 12:00-1:00 pm (District 3)
  • June 30 from 12:00-1:00 pm (District 2)

For more information and a meeting link, RSVP at the IRC website. To request live language interpretation, call (619) 409-3003 or send an email at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting to redistricting@sdcounty.ca.gov.

The meetings are informational only and not Independent Redistricting Commission hearings. Commissioners cannot accept any public input on maps, district boundaries or communities of interest.

The public can give their input at the redistricting website, email redistricting@sdcounty.ca.gov or mail comments to: Independent Redistricting Commission, c/o Clerk of the Board, 1600 Pacific Highway, Room 402, San Diego, CA 92101. Input will also be accepted at a series of public hearings set to begin in mid-summer.

Redistricting maps must be completed by Dec. 15, 2021.
