UPDATE - April 18, 2012

The San Francisco Redistricting Task Force (SFRTF) has adopted a final supervisorial redistricting map based on the 2010 census data.  Please click here (or above) to review the map.  Click here to learn more about the SFRTF and how the members of the task force arrived to their decision. 

What is redistricting?

Every ten years, the Federal Government conducts a census to determine the number of individuals living in the United States. After the census is completed, the Charter requires the Director of Elections to determine whether the existing supervisorial districts meet the legal requirements established by federal, state and local law.

If the existing supervisorial districts no longer comply with these legal requirements, the Charter requires the Board of Supervisors to convene an Elections Task Force to redraw the supervisorial district lines. The process of redrawing the supervisorial district lines is known as redistricting.


UPDATE - March 7, 2012
