The Redistricting Assistance Sites Project

    ***IMPORTANT: Do you have feedback on the Redistricting Assistance Sites project? The Redistricting Group and The James Irvine Foundation welcome any comments and/or suggestions that would improve Redistricting Assistance Sites created for the next redistricting cycle. Please enter your feedback on this page: http://redistrictinggroup.org/contact-2/ .


    In March of 2011, the Redistricting Group at Berkeley Law (affiliated with the Statewide Database) opened six technical assistance sites in the following locations: San Diego, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Fresno, Sacramento and Berkeley. More detail on these locations is archived below. The sites, designed to encourage public participation in the state redistricting process, had computers and redistricting software available for use by the general public, so that individuals and groups could develop map submissions or testimony for the states Citizens Redistricting Commission while the Commission was deliberating. Starting on July 12, 2011, the public could view the CRC map visualizations in detail at the redistricting sites. Managed by staff at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law, the sites were independent from the Citizens Redistricting Commission itself. This was a project funded by The James Irvine Foundation to increase access to data, software and information about the 2011 Redistricting Process.
