Vista Irrigation District to Hold Public Hearing on Redistricting (February 23, 2022)
Vista Irrigation District board of directors will hold a public hearing on March 2, 2022 at 9:00 AM to discuss proposed adjustments to division boundaries as part of the decennial redistricting process.
Every ten years, agencies with by-district election systems, such as Vista Irrigation District (District), must use new federal census data to review and, if needed, redraw electoral division boundaries to reflect how local populations have changed. This process, called redistricting, ensures all electoral divisions comply with both the California and federal Voting Rights Acts. The District must reestablish electoral divisional boundaries, creating divisions that are balanced in population and in accordance with local, state, and federal laws that govern the redistricting process. Redistricting does not change the District’s service area boundaries.
Community members are invited to attend the March 2, 2022 public hearing to provide input on the proposed boundary division map. The redistricting process is required to be completed by April 17, 2022.
For more information regarding the proposed boundary division changes and how to participate in the redistricting process, contact Director of Administration, Marlene Kelleher at (760) 597-3100 or visit the district website at www.vidwater.org/notice-of-public-hearing.Download News Release
