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.
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):
