Redistricting

 

Every 10 years, the United States Constitution and the California State Constitution require federal, state and local district divisional boundary lines to be reviewed and redrawn, if necessary, to account for population growth and movement within the entire boundaries of the district. This process is known as Redistricting and is based on the results of the decennial U.S. Census.

Redistricting for U.S. Representatives, State Senate, State Assembly, State Board of Equalization, and Monterey County Board of Supervisors has been completed. The process included state and local citizen redistricting commissions which were comprised of appointed citizens who held public hearings, received community map proposals, and ultimately presented final maps that will directly impact our community for the next 10 years.

You will be voting for representatives using the new district boundaries beginning with the June 7, 2022, Statewide Direct Primary Election. If your districts have changed as a result of redistricting, your current representatives remain in office until the new office holders are sworn in after the general election.

In addition to new representatives, as a result of redistricting, your voting area may experience a polling place change. The change may include a new voting location or a new mail ballot precinct designation. If you are now in a mail ballot precinct, you will not have an assigned polling place on Election Day. You can still receive assistance at any early vote location in Monterey County. You can also receive assistance with your vote by mail ballot at any polling place in the county. If you choose to vote in person at a polling place, you will be assisted with a provisional ballot.

Information regarding changes will be included in various mailings including:

  • Pre-election residency confirmation card: mailed to all voters. Reports your assigned federal, state, and county districts.

  • Your local voter information guide: mailed to all voters who have not opted out of the paper mailing. Reports general changes as a result of redistricting and changes to your assigned polling place (found on the back cover of the guide).

  • Poll Place Notification Card: mailed to voters in areas where a polling place has changed from the previous election.

 

City, school and special districts with divisional boundary lines are currently in the process of being reviewed and, if necessary, redrawn. In addition, some districts that have historically elected council members or governing board members at large are moving to a by-division method of voting.

  • At large means the candidate can live anywhere in the district and all voters in the district vote on the contest.

  • By-division means the candidate must reside in a specified area of the district and only those voters in the area can vote on the contest.

These changes will take effect in the November general election. Representatives and polling places may change as a result of this process. Redistricting information will be included in your local voter information guide.
