Annual Meeting: Local Redistricting to be Addressed
Each year, when CSAC staff and leadership begin planning our Annual Meeting, we examine timely topics and issues that will be of particular importance to California counties at the end of the year. Among the topics we will be covering at our upcoming Annual Meeting, set for Nov. 16-19 in Riverside County, is one that all counties must face in the near future: redistricting.
It’s hard to believe it’s been a decade since this issue was last addressed, but it is time again for counties to prepare for local redistricting. On Tuesday afternoon (Nov. 16), CSAC is hosting a panel discussion on Redistricting 101: It’s Time To Draw the Lines featuring Deborah Seiler, Registrar of Voters for San Diego County, and Karin MacDonald, Director of the Statewide Database at University of California, Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies. This panel of experts will help you understand the state and federal laws involved in the process of adjusting the boundaries of county supervisorial districts in 2011 and what your county should be doing to prepare for and execute this significant task. It’s a can’t miss for county officials.
