THIS IS IMPORTANT: redistricting is underway in San Diego County.
Every ten years, the County of San Diego Independent Redistricting Commission (IRC) uses the results of the Federal Census to determine our county’s district boundaries — boundaries that can have a huge impact on voters and elections.
With so much on the line in 2022, it’s crucial the IRC has as much information as possible when drawing these districts. Click here to learn more about redistricting and how you can get involved.
The work to build a representative government doesn’t end on Election Day.
Participating in redistricting is a key way to ensure that San Diegans’ voices are heard and historically excluded populations are a part of the conversation.
From attending a meeting and submitting public comment to contacting the 14-member commission via email, phone, or mail — there are a lot of ways you can help shape the future of San Diego County.
Redistricting is underway NOW. Be sure and take action on this before the end of the week. Don’t wait.
The County of San Diego Redistricting Commission needs the input of Coronado Residents. The Commission hasn’t heard from us. Do we like where we are in D1? What is our community of interest? A community of interest is a neighborhood, community, or group of people who have common policy concerns and would benefit from being maintained in a single district. When considering community interest, think about environmental concerns such as the Tijuana River sewage spills, air pollution, sea rise vulnerability, climate action plans, marine life, ocean water pollution, and traffic issues. What are the community concerns which affect our way of life in this community?
What issues do we share in common with our neighbors? What makes us unique? Local community members need to speak up.
