The Redistricting Process

Every 10 years, local governments use new data from the Census to redraw their district lines to reflect how local populations have changed. State law requires cities and counties to engage communities in the redistricting process by holding public hearings and doing public outreach, including to underrepresented and non-English-speaking communities.

After a nine-month community engagement month process, the City of Fremont has completed its redistricting process, with the Fremont City Council adopting a new City Council district map on April 5, 2022. The new City Council district map is now effective and will be implemented for the November 2022 election.

The new Council District Map hosts minor changes to Districts 2, 3, 4, and 6, while no changes were made district boundary lines of Districts 1 and 5. Councilmembers will continue to serve under the same election cycle with Council Districts 2, 3, and 4 being up for election in November 2022, while Districts 1, 5, and 6 are up for election in 2024.

The City of Fremont began its redistricting process in July 2021, and hosted a series of five public hearings, community workshops, and public outreach for input on important attributes about Fremont’s communities of interests and neighborhoods in order to best redraw the City’s Council District Map to be balanced in population and reflect equitable opportunities for Fremont residents. The City Council received 15 maps from the public and three maps from the City’s demographer consultant for review.

The finalized map defines the six City of Fremont district borders, and the new districts will be effective for the next 10 years. To review the final adopted map, please visit: Fremont 2022 Adopted City Council District Map
