Oakland’s 2020-21 Redistricting Process

Every 10 years, after the U.S. Census, the City of Oakland and Oakland Unified School District must re-establish the boundaries for City Council and School Board of Directors districts. Beginning in 2020, a 15-member independent Redistricting Commission made up entirely of community members, will set those boundaries in a process that is free from special interests, politics and political influence.

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.

The Redistricting Commission must be established by September 1, 2020, and will be responsible for approving the final boundary lines no later than December 31, 2021.
