Registrar of Voters Jill LaVine's office has released five redistricting proposals, each shows that District 5 Supervisor Don Nottoli could lose more than 70,000 residents from his district after the redistricting process concludes this summer.
Under the proposed plans, Elk Grove's population growth is one of the factors that greatly affected Sacramento County's district boundaries, LaVine told reporters today. Proposed redistricting maps are available on the county website.
Current census data show that Elk Grove's total population has more than doubled in the last 10 years, from 59,984 in 2000 to 153,015 in 2010.
The Department of Voter Registration and Elections redraws supervisorial district lines every 10 years following the release of the U.S. census.
Residents are encouraged to provide their input on the proposed redistricting plans. Comments can be posted online at www.elections.saccounty.net. They can also attend community workshops, which will be held until June.
Supervisor Nottoli will hold public workshops from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on May 11 at Monterey Trail High School, and from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on May 24 at the Cosumnes Community Services District office.
