As part of Alliance San Diego's work to create an inclusive democracy, we want to ensure San Diegans have a voice in the 2020 California Redistricting Commission — and we want to invite you to be part of the process.
The Citizens Redistricting Commission redraws California’s congressional, state legislative and Board of Equalization lines based on Census data and comments from the public. Joining the commission is a great way to serve your community to make sure we all count!
Join Alliance San Diego and Common Cause on Wednesday, July 31, 2019 from 5:00 P.M. to 6:30 PM, for an informational session on how to apply to join the Citizens’ Redistricting Commission.
What is the California Redistricting Commission?
The California Redistricting Commission (CRC) is comprised of 14 people, five Democrats, five Republicans, and four people who are registered with neither of the two main parties. After every Census, the CRC redraws California’s congressional, state legislative, and Board of Equalization lines based on Census data and comments from the public.
We are encouraging people from our community to apply for the citizens’ commission to represent San Diego. The application process opened June 10th and closes August 9th and candidates must meet certain requirements. This is a great way to serve your community to make sure we all count!
Who is eligible to apply?
Registered voters are eligible to serve on the Commission if they:
- Have been registered in California with the same political party, or with no political party, for the five years immediately prior to being appointed to the Commission, and
- Have voted in at least two of the last three statewide general elections.
