Voters Choice Napa and Redistricting
From the Napa Valley Register, January 21, 2022.

Voters Choice Napa, a part of the Community Leaders Coalition, here to give an update on Redistricting.
The California Citizens Redistricting Commission has finished its work drawing new congressional and legislative district lines. Napa County will remain intact rather than being split between two or more districts. Our congressional district (No. 4) will include parts of Sonoma and Solano counties, as well as all of Lake, Napa, and Yolo counties.
Our new state senate district (No. 3) includes Rohnert Park and Sonoma, and all of Napa, Solano, and Yolo counties, and our new Assembly district ( No. 4) runs from Sonoma to West Sacramento. Final maps are available at wedrawthelinesca.org/final_maps.
The Board of Supervisors also completed redistricting, with only modest changes resulting in less than 5% of households changing districts. (“Napa County forgoes drastic Board of Supervisors redistricting changes”, Napa Valley Register, Dec. 10, 2021.) Some changes include moving all of Browns Valley into District 2, and the Alta Heights neighborhood of Napa into District 1. Maps are available at countyofnapa.org/398/2021-Redistricting.
