The Placer County Board of Supervisors in February voted to appoint the Placer County Planning Commission to act as the Advisory Redistricting Commission to draw redistricting maps, which will ultimately be brought forward to the public and board for formal review and adoption.  

The following residents serve on the Advisory Redistricting Commission: 

  • Samuel Cannon - District 1  
  • Nathan Herzog - District 2  
  • Anthony DeMattei - District 3  
  • Daniel Woodward - District 4  
  • Anders Hauge - District 5  
  • Larry Sevison - At-Large East of Sierra Crest  
  • Richard Johnson - At-Large West of Sierra Crest  

 Redistricting takes place every 10 years after the federal census. District boundaries for federal, state, and local elected offices are redrawn to reflect new census data and shifting populations.

Census data allows county officials to realign supervisorial districts in their counties, accounting for shifts in population growth since the last Census and assuring equal representation for their constituents in compliance with the “one-person, one-vote” principle of the Voting Rights Act.
