Each redistricting dataset merges the electoral data the SWDB collected and processed over the preceding decade with the most current census data (PL94-171). The result is a census block level dataset that allows for longitudinal analysis of electoral data over time on the same unit of analysis. Electoral data consist of the Statements of Vote (SOV) and Statements of Registration (SOR) for each statewide election. These data are collected from the Registrars of Voters for each of the 58 California counties with each election.
The SWDB collects the Statement of Vote and the Statement of Registration along with various geography files from each of the 58 counties for every statewide election. The Statement of Vote is a precinct level dataset and precincts in California change frequently between elections. The goal of the SWDB is to make election data available that can be compared over time, on the same unit of analysis – a precinct, a census block or a census tract.

District 19 (37.06% D - 42.8% R - 14.65% DCL) - George
Radanovich - MAP
Reapportionment gave this formerly Democratic stronghold in the northern San
Joaquin Valley a decidedly Re/publican flavor thanks to the Supreme Court's desire
to carve a Latino district out of neighboring territory (CD 20). With three-quarters
of the district's population in Fresno County and the remainder divided among
Madera, Mariposa and Stanislaus counties, this district is 3.8% African American,
5.2% Asian, 34.8% Latino and 52.6% White.
District 20 (51.23% D - 31.12% R - 12.73% DCL) - Jim Costa - MAP

Court masters constructed the minority-dominant 20th District. The district
includes Kern County, minus Bakersfield, and surges north to include the remainder
of Tulare County. Solidly in the Re/publican camp, Whites make up 40% of the

District 22 (30.49% D - 47.85% R - 16.87% DCL) - Kevin McCarthy - MAP
Right in the middle of the Central California coast is a district that is more
conservative than the rest of the state's coastal areas. Centered on San Luis
Obispo County, including most of Santa Barbara County, and a small northwest
portion of Los Angeles County, this area has almost always sent Re/publicans
to the state Legislature or to Congress. The exceptions have come when the area
is split, pushing half its population to the north or south, or pairing it with
equally conservative inland districts. The Supreme Court did not do that, making
this district safe for Re/publicans. This district is 6% African American,
3.4% Asian, 30% Latino.
District 23 (46.63% D - 27.46% R - 20.59% DCL) - Lois
Capps - MAP
Central Coast district encompassing parts of San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara,

P. "Buck" McKeon - MAP
The northern part of Los Angeles County in the Antelope Valley (Palmdale, Lancaster
and Santa Clarita) is more akin politically to the Central Valley than to the
rest of the county to the south. This district includes all that area and dips
over to pick up Chatsworth and Northridge from the San Fernando Valley as well.
Indeed, this part of the county at times has tried to split off and form a new
county of its own. San Bernardino, Inyo, and Mono counties are also found in
this district. It's solidly Re/publican. This district is 9.5% African American,
5.2% Asian, 38.2% Latino.

Sherman - MAP
The suburbs north of downtown Los Angeles, including Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena,
and La Canada. The politics here are Re/publican even though nearly 40 percent
of the population is minority. The trouble is, most of the minority population
isn't registered and doesn't vote. Latinos, for example, make up 20 percent
of the population but fewer than 8 percent of the registered voters. This district
is 4.4% African American, 11.9% Asian, 41.5% Latino.
District 28 (56.32%D - 17.18%R - 21.82% DCL) - Howard

Schiff - MAP
The affluent communities of Los Angeles' westside, including Beverly Hills,
Santa Monica, Westwood and Hancock Park, have been collected into this solidly
Democratic district that has been dominated by liberal Jewish politicians. The
area's affluence has been magnified by the fact that much of the Hollywood community
also lives here. This district is 5% African American, 26.8% Asian, 24.7% Latino.

district is 4% African American, 14.2% Asian, 69.1% Latino.
District 32 (51.19% D - 22.83% R - 21.86% DCL) -Judy Chu - MAP

Roybal-Allard - MAP
With the largest Latino population within the California congressional delegation,
District 34 includes portions of Los Angeles, the cities of Downey and Huntington
Beach. The Latino population is an overwhelming 80.6%, trailed by 5.9% Asian,
and 4.1% African American. It is a safe democratic stronghold.
District 35 (66.39% D - 12.79% R - 16.79% DCL) - Maxine
Waters - MAP
The most Democratic congressional district in the state includes the cities
of Inglewood and Hawthorne as well as south-central Los Angeles. The district's
population is 29.4% African American, 52.9% Latino, and 5.7% Asian. The new district stretches
towards the beaches south and east of Hawthorne, diluting its Democratic base,
but not threatening Maxine Waters' incumbency.
District 36 (45.33% D - 27.57% R - 22.15% DCL) -
Jane Harman - MAP
This district runs along Santa Monica Bay from south of Santa Monica through
the Palos Verdes Peninsula and includes the cities of El Segundo, Manhattan
Beach, Redondo Beach, Torrance and Lomita. The district has a large minority population, with 32.1% Latino, 4.3% African American, and 15.1%
District 37 (60.29% D - 16.64% R - 18.55% DCL) - Laura Richardson - MAP
The fourth strongest Democratic district in the state, it includes parts of
Los Angeles as well as the cities of Compton, Carson and the downtown portion
of Long Beach. Formerly a Re/publican seat held by Steve Horn, it is over 60%
registered Democrat, with a large minority population of 82%, with the largest
ethnic group being that of Latinos, who make up 49% of the population. Asians make up 11.8% while African Americans make up 21.3%.

Pomona, Norwalk, Pico Rivera, and Montebello. Formerly CD 34, this district
remains substantially Latino at 75.6%, followed by 10.3% Asian, and 3.1% African American.
The district had gone Re/publican through the first half of the 1990s, but the
races all were competitive and registration favors Democrats enough to keep
it that way until the next redistricting.
District 39 (51.84% D - 25.46% R - 18.65% DCL) - Linda
Sanchez - MAP
One-third of this district's voters live in the Los Angeles County communities
of Cerritos, La Mirada, and Paramount. This district formerly had a small portion
within Orange County but was recently drawn to remain entirely within LA County,
thus providing a relatively safe Democratic seat. These LA voters are predominantly
Democratic with 52% registration compared to a 25% GOP contingent. The district
has a large minority population -- 65.9% Latino, 10.6% Asian, and 5.0% African American.
District 40 (33.39% D - 42.5% R - 19.83% DCL) - Edward
R. Royce - MAP
This Orange County District includes the communities of Orange, Fullerton, and
Buena Park. It is a relatively safe Re/publican seat with an closely split White
(40.6%) and minority population of 34.8% Latino, 19.2% Asian, and 2.7% African American.
This oddly shaped district carefully surrounds the city of Anaheim, avoiding
Anaheim Democrats to secure the GOP's incumbency.
District 41 (33.1% D - 44.4% R - 17.15% DCL) - Jerry
A 29% minority district split between San Bernardino and Riverside counties.
Re/publicans outnumber Democrats here, thanks to conservative voters found in
Redlands, Colton, and San Jacinto, among others. More than 80% live within San
Bernardino County, a safe GOP county. Only 32.6% of the district is Latino,
which is overwhelmingly White (53.5%).
District 42 (30.05% D - 45.82% R -20.27% DCL) - Gary
Miller - MAP
A GOP district that includes the counties of San Bernardino, Orange, and Los
Angeles, and includes the cities of Mission Viejo, La Habra, Anaheim, and Yorba
Linda. It maintains only a 40% minority population, with 28.4% Latino, 18.3%
Asian, and 2.4% African American. CD 42 has experienced serious tension during the 1990s
as Re/publicans ousted liberal veteran Democrat George Brown Jr. with Re/publican
District 43 (49.07% D - 29.64% R - 17.43% DCL) - Joe
Baca - MAP
Found entirely within San Bernardino County, CD 43 contains the cities of Ontario,
Rialto, and Fontana. The majority of the population is made
up of Latinos (67.4%), trailed far behind by Asians (3.8%) and African Americans (10.4%).
This district swallowed up Ontario to provide incumbent Joe Baca a safe Democratic
District 44 (33.47% D - 43.36% R - 18.46% DCL) - Ken
Calvert - MAP
Including the Orange and Riverside counties of San Clemente, Riverside, and
Corona, the district is more than a third minority, with Latinos alone accounting
for 43.1%, followed by 5.6% African Americans, and 6.2% Asians. CD 44 has and will probably
remain a safe Re/publican seat for incumbent Ken Calvert.
District 45 (38.14% D - 41.39% R - 16.12% DCL) - Mary
Bono Mack - MAP
Within Riverside County and a historic GOP bastion that incorporates the communities
of Coachella, Moreno Valley, and Palm Springs, it is more than 42.6% white, and
has 43.9% Latino, 6.1% African American, and 4.5% Asian. Despite voting for Davis in '98,
CD 45 was drawn to provide a safe haven for Re/publican incumbent, Mary Bono.
District 46 (31.5% D - 43.21% R - 20.57% DCL) - Dana
Rohrabacher - MAP
A 75% non-minority district in Los Angeles and Orange Counties that is only
19.1% Latino, 18.2% Asian, and 1.4% African American. It includes the cities of Avalon, Costa
Mesa, Huntington Beach, Seal Beach, and the wealthier Rancho Palos Verdes and
Rolling Hills. This district was drawn to isolate Palos Verdes Re/publicans who
troubled the Democrats throughout the 1990s. It is a safe seat for the GOP.
District 47 (46.79% D - 30.85% R - 18.83% DCL) - Loretta
Sanchez - MAP
Interior Orange County is relatively safe Democratic territory. It includes
only portions of the cities of Santa Ana, Anaheim, and Garden Grove. It is home
to a growing Latino population (69.8%), which should make it a safe Democratic
seat, but maintains a Re/publican-leaning contingent that voted for Bill Jones
in '98 for Secretary of State. It also has a 14.8% Asian and a minuscule 1.2%
African American population.
District 48 (28.92% D - 44.15% R - 22.73% DCL) - John Campbell - MAP
Orange County district which includes Aliso Viejo, Dana Point, Irvine, Laguna
Beach, Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel, Laguna Woods, Lake Forest, and Newport Beach.
It is a safe Re/publican district with a small minority population, including

E. Issa - MAP
District 49 is primarily composed of the geographic area that was formerly District
48. Voters in this region have elected re/publicans as their representatives
for the past two decades. Re/publican Darrel Issa has represented this district
since his election in 2000. Prior to 2000, Ron Packard represented this area
for ten years as the representative for the 48th Congressional district. This
district is composed mostly of the San Diego County communities of Oceanside,
San Diego, Vista, Bonsall, Fallbrook, and Camp Pendleton, among others. The
