What is redistricting?

Every ten years, districts must be redrawn so that each district is substantially equal in population. This process, called redistricting, is important in ensuring that each city councilmember represents about the same number of constituents. In Wildomar, the City Council is responsible for drawing council districts.

Redistricting is done using U.S. Census data, which is usually released around March 31, 2021; however, due to COVID-19, the U.S. Census data was delayed and the information will not be available until September 30, 2021. For the City of Wildomar, the redistricting process must be completed by April 17, 2022.
