County Redistricting Advisory Commission

Riverside County supervisorial district boundaries are geographically redrawn every 10 years in line with the county's population as reported by the U.S. Census, most recently conducted in 2020.

Throughout the redistricting process, this site will be updated to include public meeting notices, agendas and minutes, as well as proposed redistricting maps.

Community input is extremely important to the redistricting process, and there will be ongoing opportunities for comments on the proposed district lines. Ultimately, the Riverside County Board of Supervisors will adopt the new supervisorial district boundaries by Fall 2021.

The last time the county went through a redistricting process was in 2011. To view the 2011 website, click here

 

Frequently Asked Questions

What is redistricting?

In accordance with the California Election Code Section 21500, following each decennial federal census, and using that census as a basis, the Riverside County Board of Supervisors adjusts the boundaries of any or all of the county supervisorial districts so that the districts shall be as nearly equal in population, and comply with applicable provisions of Section 1973 of Title 42 of the United States Code, as amended.

In establishing the boundaries of the supervisorial districts, the board may give consideration to the following factors:
(a) topography,
(b) geography,
(c) cohesiveness, contiguity, integrity, and compactness of territory, and
(d) community of interests of the districts.

Are city, state and congressional districts part of the county's redistricting efforts?

No. Cities with wards or districts, as well as state and federal legislatures conduct their own redistricting efforts within their level of government. The County of Riverside is charged with only redistricting it's own jurisdictional lines, which are the five supervisorial districts.

When does redistricting occur?

It occurs every 10 years after each decennial U.S. Census. The most recent Census was completed in 2020 with the results anticipated to be released by in the Spring of 2021.
