Every 10 years, the County of Santa Clara draws new supervisorial district lines based on the updated Census data. For new maps to be drawn that reflect the community, the Advisory Redistricting Commission held several meetings, received hours of public testimony, and reviewed several maps drawn by community members, organizations and commissioners. People can view the draft maps at www.sccgov.org/2021redistricting.
