Visit the Redistricting Placer interactive website, a roadmap for how residents can participate in redrawing Placer’s supervisorial district boundaries to reflect population changes reported in the 2020 Census. The Placer County Board of Supervisors voted in February to appoint the Placer County Planning Commission to act as the Advisory Redistricting Commission to draw redistricting maps, which will ultimately be brought forward to the public and board for formal review and adoption.
The following residents serve on the Advisory Redistricting Commission:
Samuel Cannon, District 1; Nathan Herzog, District 2; Anthony DeMattei, District 3; Daniel Woodward, District 4; Anders Hauge, District 5; Larry Sevison, At-Large East of Sierra Crest; Richard Johnson, At-Large West of Sierra Crest.
Redistricting takes place every 10 years after the federal census. Using the Census data, county officials realign supervisorial districts in their counties, accounting for shifts in population growth since the last Census and assuring equal representation for their constituents in compliance with the “one-person, one-vote” principle of the Voting Rights Act.
