The Districting Process: Help Us Draw Aliso Viejo's Future
Local governments use data from the U.S. Census Bureau to draw district lines to reflect the changing local population demographics. State law requires cities, counties, and special districts to engage communities in the districting process by holding public hearings and doing public outreach.
The City of Aliso Viejo is transitioning from an at-large election process to district-based elections through which the City’s five council members will each be elected from a single-member district. A by-district method divides an agency into separate districts and allows the voters in each district to elect a member of the City Council. These new district-based elections will take effect for the November 2024 election.
We Want to Hear Your Thoughts!
The City Council will be holding public hearings to receive resident input on where district lines should be drawn. Share your specific thoughts, draw a map, attend an upcoming public hearing to get involved! We want to hear your stories - tell us what your communities of interest are and give your opinions on draft maps in person or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
