CITY COUNCIL REDISTRICTING COMMISSION:
The Los Angeles City Charter requires that the City be redistricted at least once every 10 years. It calls for the creation of a twenty-one member Redistricting Commission, which has the authority to make recommendations on a redistricting plan to the City Council that sets boundaries for City Council districts.

LOS ANGELES COUNTY REDISTRICTING COMMISSION:
Every ten years, the U.S. Census Bureau attempts to count every person living in the United States. The latest Decennial Census was conducted in 2020. The census provides a snapshot of how many people there are and where they live. Following the Decennial Census, Los Angeles County must divide its population into five reasonably equal Supervisorial Districts. This is called redistricting.
CALIFORNIA CITIZENS REDISTRICTING COMMISSION:
Visit the 2020 California Citizens Redistricting Commission (CRC) website where you will find information about California’s redistricting process and how you can get involved. In November 2008, California voters passed the Voters FIRST Act, authorizing the creation of the Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission to draw new district lines, taking the job out of the hands of the California Legislature and transferring it to the citizens. In 2010, the VOTERS FIRST Act for Congress added the responsibility of drawing Congressional districts to the Commission.
