What is redistricting?
Every ten years, local governments use new census data to redraw their district lines to reflect how local populations have changed. Assembly Bill 849 requires the Antelope Valley-East Kern Water Agency (AVEK) to engage communities in the redistricting process by holding public hearings and/or workshops and doing public outreach, including to non-English-speaking communities. AVEK will seek input in selecting the next district map for our districts. You have an opportunity to share with AVEK how you think district boundaries should be drawn to best represent your community. You can contact AVEK at _______________ to find out more about how the process works.
