Three alternative redistricting plans have been submitted for consideration by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, which is required by law to review supervisorial boundaries based on updated census data every 10 years.
Any plan approved by the Board must meet the requirements of the Voting Rights Act as well as other federal and state laws regarding redistricting.

“I have always supported districts that respect geographic boundaries and do not gerrymander communities of interest,” said 5th District Supervisor Michael Antonovich, whose district remains largely unchanged. “Many factors should be considered in determining a community of interest and having three plans will afford an opportunity for the public to comment on a variety of configurations of the supervisorial districts.”
Alternative maps may be reviewed online at http://redistricting.lacounty.gov/. An analysis of each plan will be available no later than August 21, 2011. A public hearing will be held at 10 a.m. September 6 at the Board Hearing Room – 500 West Temple Street . The public hearing will offer an opportunity for the public to provide input into the final plan.
