For most residents that fall within Western’s divisions, there will not be a significant change. However, a small percentage of customers will now reside within a new division, where their vote will be counted.
Now that Western’s Board of Directors has approved the division map, it will be submitted to the Registrar of Voters for final approval. The map will go into effect starting with the 2022 elections.
Access to the approved division map can be found here.
The new division boundaries will be in effect for 10 years, until the next U.S. Census takes place, and Western will follow the California law and undertake the redistricting process again.
With Western’s updated divisions approved, an election will be held in Nov. to select members for the Board of Directors.
About the redistricting process
Redistricting is the process of adjusting the boundaries of election districts for cities, counties, school boards and water agencies, following population shifts based on federal census data once every ten years. Western started the redistricting process in Fall 2021 by holding a public hearing to introduce the process and receive community input on proposed mapping options.
