Title

Independent Redistricting Commission

Redistricting is the regular process of adjusting the lines of voting districts in accordance with population shifts. For many jurisdictions, including the City of Santa Barbara, this means redrawing district lines every ten years following the decennial census. In the modern era of redistricting, all district lines must be reviewed after the census to meet strict requirements for population equality and voting rights protections.
