In November 2014, the Oakland electorate approved a ballot measure creating an independent Redistricting Commission that will re-draw the boundary lines for City Council and Oakland Unified School Board of Directors districts following the U.S. Census.
On August 27, 2020, all members of the Redistricting Commission were announced. The Commission is responsible for approving the final boundary lines no later than December 31, 2021.
You can read more about the redistricting process and work of the Commission in Article II, Section 220 of the City Charter.
