Local Redistricting


The redistricting proposal deadline for any Supervisorial or other local district election to be held in March of 2002, is August 21, 2001. All California counties will adhere to this deadline.
If the election will take place after March a set of deadlines that differs from county to county are in effect. The common trend is this: anywhere from 125-186 days prior to the election the lines/proposals are due. We have information for a few counties below (and plan to continuously update the list as calls are returned):

Alameda County:

"Any other [outside of Supervisorial] local redrawing of lines will occur at least 6 months or so before the actual election."

Fresno County:

"The 120 days following the release of the 2000 California redistricting dataset is used by local districts to determine whether or not their districts must be redrawn. The exact deadline for proposals is 180 days prior to the election."

San Diego County:

"125 days prior to any local election the district in question must submit a new plan to the Registrar of Voters. 88 days prior to the election the Registrar of Voters will have the realignment of precincts completed."

Orange County:

"186 days prior to an election the county will send a letter to the particular district letting them know the lines are due. The exact deadline for line submission will be included in the letter, as it may fluctuate from district to district. However, 88 days prior to the election the Registrar of Voters will have the realignment of precincts completed."
