2020 Federal Census Citizens Redistricting Commission

Published on Mar 26, 2019 at 07:41a.m.

As the 2020 Federal Census fast approaches, it is now time for the California State Auditor’s Office to begin the process of forming California’s 2020 Citizens Redistricting Commission (commission). The State Auditor’s Office is the organization tasked with encouraging eligible applicants to apply for a seat on the 14-member commission. The commission will redraw the boundaries of the Congressional, State Senate, State Assembly and State Board of Equalization districts, so that the districts correctly reflect the state's population.


To make Californians aware of the opportunity to apply for the 2020 Citizens Redistricting Commission, the State Auditor’s Office has asked for our help in spreading the word to eligible applicants in your cities.


ShapeCaliforniasFuture.auditor.ca.gov is the official site for the public, community organizations, and stakeholders to get information about the application and selection process for the Commission. There, you can get details on eligibility and application timelines, a list of resource materials available for download and a form where interested parties can sign up for email updates. The resource documents are available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese and Tagalog.


Please help spread the word about the 2020 Citizens Redistricting Commission and urge eligible citizens to apply for this once in a decade opportunity. The open application period will begin on June 10, 2019 and will run through August 9, 2019, and citizens will be able to apply at ShapeCaliforniasFuture.auditor.ca.gov.


If you have any questions or would like to request a speaker from the State Auditor’s Office for an upcoming event, please call 1-833-421-7550 or email shapecaliforniasfuture@auditor.ca.gov.
