Redistricting is the regular process of adjusting the lines of City Council voting districts in accordance with population shifts. In California, public agencies and other organizations must review the lines of their voting districts every ten years once the results of the U.S. Census are released so that each voting district is substantially equal. This ensures that each elected official represents about the same number of constituents.

All voting district lines must be reviewed to meet strict requirements for population equality and voting rights protections in accordance with the California FAIR MAPS Act.
