Kern Co. redistricting workshop July 31

Kern County – This year, Kern County will undergo the process of redistricting in accordance with the 2020 U.S. Census data. Redrawing district lines to reflect Kern’s current population is vital to ensuring each district is representative of the constituents that live therein.

The County will hold a redistricting workshop and is asking for community members, stakeholders, and organizations to get involved and provide input on this process. Kern County recognizes its obligation to residents and values accessibility to Kern’s community when it comes to this complex conversation.

Kern County has also launched a website dedicated to this endeavor with detailed information about the local redistricting process. Please visit: https://www.kerncounty.com/government/2021-redistricting-menu
