Prop 20: Congressional redistricting

SUMMARY

Removes elected representatives from process of establishing congressional districts and transfers that authority to recently-authorized 14-member redistricting commission comprised of Democrats, Republicans, and respresentatives of neither party.

Fiscal Impact:

No significant net change in state redistricting costs.

WHAT YOUR VOTE MEANS

A YES vote on this measure means:

The responsibility to determine the boundaries of California’s districts in the U.S. House of Representatives would be moved to the Citizens Redistricting Commission, a commission established by Proposition 11 in 2008. (Proposition 27 on this ballot also concerns redistricting issues. If both Proposition 20 and Proposition 27 are approved by voters, the proposition receiving the greater number of “yes” votes would be the only one to go into effect.)

A NO vote on this measure means:

The responsibility to determine the boundaries of California’s districts in the U.S. House of Representatives would remain with the Legislature.
