Last year, the 2020 Census marked the 24th count of the U.S. population. Census results are used to apportion seats in the House of Representatives, to realign congressional districts, and to determine how to distribute hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funds each year. On a local level, Census results inform the redrawing of County, City, and School District lines to appropriately represent evolving populations and communities of interest.
Yolo County Supervisor Don Saylor joins Autumn Labbe-Renault for a discussion about the process of redistricting, and its impacts here in Yolo County, and a process that will conclude in December 2021.
