2021 to 2022 Redistricting

Lake Elsinore City Council Redistricting Banner

Every ten years, local governments use new census data to redraw their district lines to reflect how local populations have changed. This year, the City of Lake Elsinore is in the process of redistricting based on data from the 2020 Census. Redistricting determines which neighborhoods and communities are grouped together into a district for the purpose of electing a City Council Member.

Assembly Bill 849 (2019) requires cities and counties to engage communities in the redistricting process by holding public hearings and/or workshops and doing public outreach, including to non-English-speaking communities. Therefore, the City is seeking public input regarding district boundary adjustments prior to adopting the next district map.
