Following receipt of updated population data from the 2020 Census, cities in California with electoral districts are required to update their district boundaries (“redistrict”). With Brentwood’s next district elections scheduled to occur on November 8, 2022, the redistricting process must be completed by April 17, 2022.
The City Council has established a hybrid redistricting commission and has transferred all but the last step of the redistricting process to a separate body. When the commission’s part of the process is complete, it will submit two or more potential boundary maps to the City Council and the Council must then select, without modifying, one of the submitted maps.
What is redistricting?
Every ten years, after new U.S. Census, local governments who hold district elections must update their district boundaries based on the updated population numbers. The Brentwood Redistricting Commission will use 2020 Census figures to change district boundaries and create City Council election districts that are balanced in population and comply with local, state, and federal laws.
How is this year different from when the City created Council election districts in 2019?
Unlike 2019, this year and next, a group of community volunteers will work with Brentwood residents to develop revised election districts. Two or more revised election district maps are then presented to the City Council in early 2022, and the City Council must select one, without any revisions. The selected map will then be used for the next 10 years for City Council elections.

Why Does it Matter to Me?
Redistricting determines which neighborhoods and communities are grouped together into a district for purposes of electing councilmembers. Brentwood’s Redistricting Commission will seek the public’s input in drafting the next district map for our City Council. You have an opportunity to share with the Commission how you think district boundaries should be drawn to best represent your community. You can contact City staff at email@example.com to find out more about how the process works.
