What is Redistricting?

Every 10 years, after the U.S. Census, the City of Sacramento must re-establish the boundaries for City Council districts. The resulting council district boundaries must be balanced in population in accordance with local, state, and federal rules governing the redistricting process.

In 2020, the Sacramento Independent Redistricting Commission was formed to set council district boundaries. 

The SIRC adopted the Final Sacramento Council District Map on Dec 16, 2021. This map is effective immediately.
