The Redistricting Process

The City of Orange is asking for your help to plan and draw new City districts.

Every 10 years, local governments use new data from the Census to redraw their district lines to reflect how local populations have changed. State law requires cities and counties to engage communities in the redistricting process by holding public hearings and doing public outreach, including to underrepresented and non-English-speaking communities.

The final map created through the redistricting process will define Orange’s City Council district boundaries for the next 10 years. There are many ways to participate in redistricting and we invite you to get involved!
