In November 2014, the Oakland electorate approved a ballot measure creating an independent Redistricting Commission and Screening Panel that will re-draw the boundary lines for City Council Districts and Oakland Unified Board Member Districts following the U.S. Census.
The Screening Panel will be formed in late-2019 and will review applications for individuals applying to serve on the Redistricting Commission. The application period for the Screening Panel is now open and closes on September 30, 2019.
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. The application period for the Redistricting Commission will open in December 2019 and close on April 1, 2020.
