Why Should Redistricting Be Important to Me?

How district boundaries are drawn can make the difference between empowering voters' voices or muting those voices. Speaking up about your own community is how you can ensure district lines make good sense and reflect your interests. Drawing good district boundaries allows all of us to make our voices heard by our elected leaders as they make decisions on the quality of our schools or how much we pay in taxes.  District boundaries can reflect constituents’ interests in terms of health care, immigration, roads, policing practice, working conditions, and business development standards represented on our behalf.


Come learn how California’s exemplary Citizens’ Redistricting Commission, made up of 14 independent citizens, gets put together every 10 years following the U.S. Census. Meet the Commissioners themselves, engage with them, ask questions, and hear what inspired them to apply to become a commissioner. They will talk to us about how the process was successful, and how it can be made better. 

 

The League of Women Voters believes that voters should select their elected officials – not the other way around. A state redistricting process with standards that promote fair and effective representation in the state legislature and in congress should maximize opportunity for public scrutiny. We support an independent commission as the preferred redistricting body. We are proud to sponsor this public information forum alongside our many community co-sponsors, as a public example of direct democracy in action.

 


FAQs

 

Is this presentation for the general public?

Yes. It is a chance to meet the Commissioners and ask them questions about applying to the commission and how the redistricting process works.


How can I drive there? Where do I park?





From the San Diego Freeway (405), exit on Jamboree toward Newport Beach. From Jamboree, take the fist left on Michelson. Pass Riparian (do not enter here) and continue to Harvard. Turn right on Harvard. At University Drive turn right again. At Campus, turn right and stay in the far right lane, which leads to the right turn to the Duck Club.

From Pacific Coast Highway (1), exit on Jamboree and head inland through Newport Beach to Irvine. Turn right on Michelson. Pass Riparian (do not enter here) and continue to Harvard. Turn right on Harvard. At University Drive turn right again. At Campus, turn right and stay in the far right lane, which leads to the right turn to the Duck Club.

From Culver, head west on University. Turn right and continue to Campus Drive. At Campus, turn right and stay in the far right lane, which leads to the right turn to the Duck Club.

You may not take a left turn going east on Campus to enter Riparian from the south. Do not turn from Michelson onto Riparian to enter from the north- there is a gated roadblock. 

Parking is free on site, lots on either side of the access road. Do not park on the road.

Por que el cambio de distritos es importante para mi?

La manera en que los límites de los distritos son trazados pueden diferenciar en reforzar o callar las voces del electorado. Apoyar los derechos de su comunidad garantiza que los límites tienen sentido y reflejen sus intereses. Trazar límites de distritos de una manera apropiada permite que todas nuestras voces sean escuchadas por nuestros líderes electos cuando toman decisiones que afectan la cualidad de nuestras escuelas o cuánto pagamos en impuestos. Los límites de los distritos pueden representar el interés del electorado en relación a salud pública, inmigración, transportación, policía, condiciones de trabajo y estándares de desarrollo de negocios de nuestra parte.


Venga y aprenda cómo la Comisión Ciudadana de Cambio de Distritos de California, compuesta por 14 ciudadanos independientes, se reúne cada 10 años después del censo de los Estados Unidos. Conozca a los miembros de la Comisión en persona, hágale preguntas, y escuche que los inspiró a convertirse en parte de la Comisión. Ellos hablaran de como el proceso fue exitoso, y como se puede mejorar más todavía.


La League of Women Voters afirma que los electores deben seleccionar sus oficiales elegidos, y no lo contrario. Un proceso de cambio de distritos a nivel de estado con estándares que promueven una representación justa y eficiente en la legislatura estatal y en el congreso debe maximizar la oportunidad para ser evaluado públicamente. Apoyamos una Comisión independiente como agencia preferida para cambiar los distritos. Somos orgullosos de patrocinar este foro de información pública junto con otros patrocinadores de la comunidad, como un ejemplo público de democracia directa en acción.
