Redistricting is the regular process of adjusting the lines of voting districts in accordance with population shifts. The redistricting process is done every 10 years for local, state and federal governmental bodies by using updated Census data. The 2021 County of Orange redistricting process will use data from the 2020 Census. Release of the Census data from the United States Census Bureau has been significantly delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The delayed release of adjusted data from the State is expected by the end of September 2021. Local jurisdictions, including the County of Orange, must complete the redistricting process by no later than December 15, 2021, to allow for the new supervisorial districts to be ready for use in the June 7, 2022 primary election.

Information on upcoming redistricting activities will be updated on the County’s website at www.ocgov.com/redistricting. In addition, the County has created a dedicated email address and phone line for members of the public to submit questions or comments regarding the County’s redistricting process. The email address is [email protected] and the phone number is (714) 834-6000.
