What Is Redistricting?
In order to get an updated count of the country's population, the U.S. Constitution requires a federal census every ten years. California used that census data to redraw the Congressional, State Senate, State Assembly, and State Board of Equalization districts based on population changes. The independent California Citizens Redistricting Commission (CCRC) used the new census data to redraw the Congressional, State Senate, State Assembly, and State Board of Equalization district boundaries.
The Secretary of State provided the new CCRC maps to the California State Legislature and to California's 58 counties who redrew precincts within the new district boundaries and assigned voters to the updated precincts. In Orange County, the Board of Supervisors is responsible for drawing supervisorial districts.
District Changes for 2022 Primary Election
Every voter in Orange County will have one or more new districts on their ballot for the 2022 Primary Election. Pursuant to the California Constitution, the CCRC was required to renumber all Congressional, State Senate, State Assembly, and State Board of Equalization districts consecutively from the northern border with Oregon to the southern border with Mexico. Below is a chart showing how many voters in Orange County are affected by changes to the new district boundaries adopted after the 2020 Census. The chart shows the percentage of voters with new district numbers for each type of contest.
