Every ten years, districts must be redrawn so that each district is substantially equal in population. This process, called redistricting, is important in ensuring each board member represents about the same number of constituents. In Lake County, the Board of Supervisors is responsible for drawing Supervisorial Districts. Redistricting is done using U.S. Census data, which is typically released around March 31, 2021. For the County of Lake, the Redistricting process must be completed by December 15, 2021.
Redistricting determines which neighborhoods and communities are grouped together into a District for the purpose of electing a Board Member. The Board of Supervisors will seek your input in selecting the next district map for our Supervisorial Districts. You have an opportunity to share with the Board of Supervisors how you think District boundaries should be drawn to best represent your community. You can email Lake County staff to find out more about how the process works.
To the extent possible, District lines will be adopted using the following criteria:
Boundaries will not be drawn for purposes of favoring or discriminating against a political party.
The Board of Supervisors will reach out to local media (LakeCoNews and the Record-Bee) to publicize the Redistricting process. We will also make a good faith effort to notify community groups of various kinds about the Redistricting process.
Public Hearings will be provided in applicable languages if residents email a request in advance to Lake County staff.
The Board of Supervisors will notify the public about Redistricting Public Hearings, post maps online before adoption, and maintain this dedicated web page for all relevant information about the Redistricting process.
The Board of Supervisors will be holding Public Hearings at the Lake County Courthouse (255 N Forbes Street, Lakeport, CA 95453 in the Board Chambers) to receive Public Input on where District lines should be drawn.
In-person participation will be facilitated to the maximum extent practical, considering COVID-19 precautions, and electronic participation will be available via Zoom (accessible by landline or mobile phone and/or any internet-connective device).

The final statutory deadline for the Redistricting process to be complete is on December 15, 2021. The County of Lake intends to culminate our process on November 30th, with the adoption of the final map.
