Redistricting

Welcome to the City of Hanford Redistricting Website. Following each Federal Census, California law requires that Single-Member Voting District boundaries be realigned to reflect changes in population based on Census data. 


Pursuant to California Elections Code 21600 et seq., the City of Hanford is required to readjust the boundaries of all council districts (redistrict) after each Federal decennial census, using that census data as a basis for any changes. Boundaries must be adjusted so that the City’s council districts are as nearly equal in population as may be and any redistricting plan must comply with the “one-person one-vote” principle, as well as the Federal Voting Rights Act of 1965 and any other constitutional constraints on districting in which race is the predominant consideration. 

The City Attorney has been directed by the City Council to review the census data and propose alternative maps to the Council.
