In November 2014, the Oakland electorate approved a ballot measure creating an independent Redistricting Commission that will re-draw the boundary lines for City Council and Oakland Unified School Board of Directors districts following the U.S. Census.
On August 27, 2020, all members of the Redistricting Commission were announced. The Commission is responsible for approving the final boundary lines no later than December 31, 2021.
Commissioners meet on the second Wednesday of each month beginning at 5:00 pm. Visit this page to view all meetings.
You can read more about the redistricting process and work of the Commission in Article II, Section 220 of the City Charter.
For information on the city's prior redistricting effort, please visit our 2013 City Council Redistricting page.
The Oakland Redistricting Commission has 15-members, 13-voting members and two-alternate members, and all of the existing districts are represented. Commissioners were selected by a three-member screening panel and began meeting in October 2020.
