About the 2022 Elections

So much is up in the air for our Primary Election in 2022. Because the Redistricting Commission received Census data late, they may not have district lines finalized until February of 2022!

STATEMENT ON RELEASE OF CENSUS DATA (September 21, 2021)

“The Statewide Database is pleased to release the official redistricting database for the State of California. These data will allow the Commission and local jurisdictions throughout the state to begin constructing their new electoral districts. The redistricting database is available free of charge at: https://statewidedatabase.org/redistricting2021/ and accessible to all Californians,” stated Karin Mac Donald, Director for the Statewide Database.

The P.L. 94-171 redistricting data is a tabulation from the decennial census that includes counts of population by race, ethnicity (Hispanic or Latino origin), voting age, housing occupancy status, and group quarters population, all at the census block level. In California, the State’s Citizens Redistricting Commission and most local jurisdictions including Cities and Counties are required by law to use the official redistricting dataset provided by the Statewide Database. This dataset is different from the data that the census provides in that it has reallocated data from incarcerated persons that were enumerated in facilities under the control of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to their last residential address.
