The District Act, in addition to Federal and State law, requires that boundaries of electoral districts must be adjusted before the first day of November of the year following the year in which each decennial federal census is taken. Adjustment of electoral districts is usually accomplished through the completion of a redistricting study, to ensure that each modified district meets the one-person, one-vote test, and to ensure compliance with the federal Voting Rights Act.
To assist with the completion of a redistricting study in an inclusive, transparent, and comprehensive manner, and in order to garner community input on redistricting, the Board of Directors established a Redistricting Advisory Committee. The committee is comprised of seven community leaders from throughout Santa Clara County.
