What is redistricting?

Every ten years, after receiving an updated U.S. Census count, local jurisdictions that elect their representatives by district as opposed to at-large reestablish district boundaries. The City of Hanford must reestablish city council district boundaries, creating council districts that are balanced in population and in accordance with local, state, and federal laws that govern the redistricting process.
