Local Redistricting in Orange County

What is Redistricting?

Redistricting is the process of redrawing the boundaries of the County's districts, which represent specific geographic areas, that elect the members of the Board of Supervisors.  The process is designed to account for population and demographic shifts.  This effort occurs every ten years following the United States decennial census and is the responsibility of both State and local governments.  Redistricting is governed by Federal and State constitutional and statutory laws.

How can the public participate in this process?

Public input is an important part of the redistricting process.  The County has created an online comment form, which allows written comments to be submitted to the County Administrator's Office for Board consideration.  In-person comments can be presented during the Public Input Session on October 12, 2021, and at the Public Hearing on October 26, 2021.  The County website will also be updated regularly.
