Supervisorial districts must be redesigned every 10 years to ensure that each district has a population that is roughly equal. Redistricting is a procedure that ensures that each board member represents roughly the same number of people. Supervisorial districts are frequently drawn by the Board of Supervisors.
Redistricting is done using US Census data, which is typically published by March 31, in the year following the decadal Census. However, the US Census Bureau has said that the data will be provided by September 30, 2021 because of the COVID-19 epidemic. The redistricting process is normally finished within a fixed time frame of several months.
