County of Santa Clara's 2021 Redistricting Process

Every 10 years, the County redraws supervisorial district boundaries, taking into account population changes reflected in the decennial Census. The County has appointed the 2021 Advisory Redistricting Commission for the 6-month redistricting effort to redraw the County’s five supervisorial district boundaries. The Board of Supervisors established the formation of a 15-member commission to hold virtual public hearings and mapping sessions, collect community input, and recommend to the Board updated placement of the district boundaries. 

The 2021 Advisory Redistricting Commission received over 200 pieces of community of interest testimony, draft maps, and public comments. Draft maps submitted through the public portal can be reviewed at  https://districtr.org/event/Santa_Clara_CountyThe Commission presented their recommendations to the Board of Supervisors on November 2, 2021 regarding the placement of the supervisorial district boundaries and serve until the completion of the 2021 supervisorial redistricting process.
