San Francisco Redistricting Task Force: Message from Patrick Carroll, DHCA Board Member:
Every 10 years after the U.S. Census, the San Francisco supervisorial districts are redrawn to ensure that each district’s population remains equal.
The San Francisco Redistricting Task Force oversees a public process to allow citizen participation, through online public meetings. Using a mapping tool, members of the public can submit redistricting proposals.
Learn more about the Redistricting Task Force website, offer comments, peruse the redistricting proposals that have been submitted or submit one of your own at: https://sfelections.org/rdtf.

The League of Women Voters of San Francisco has offered this additional information:
During the upcoming meetings, San Francisco residents are invited to share a public comment to describe the physical area that makes up their “community of interest.” Before giving public comment, we encourage you to learn how to effectively describe your community of interest at docs.google.com/document/d/1SH0DtozmmzJhnnMLe4LPBriBSRiF9_TJGvNZeUesqNU/ It’s a good idea to give public comment both during the meeting and in writing, especially if you are providing details like street names or if you want to submit a map showing your community’s boundaries.
Finally, anyone is welcome to Ask the League of Women Voters of San Francisco your questions about redistricting during our virtual office hours every Thursday and Sunday. RSVP at eventbrite.com/e/ask-the-league-league-of-women-voters-resources-hour-tickets-259013796237
