Long Beach Chopped Up by Redistricting Commission

If you click on the link and type in your address you can find out which new congressional, assembly and state senate district you now reside.

Long Beach was chopped up because the commission claimed that they had heard "Long Beach was a tale of two cities" and did not have communities of interest that needed to be kept together. Thus we now have a State Senate district drawn into Orange County (Santa Ana) and a Congressional District drawn into Garden Grove.

It is likely that several groups will bring litigation about the lines -- particularly the residents of Little Saigon who were drawn into a largely Long Beach congressional district.

The California Supreme Court will likely redraw several of the districts and then the fun begins as candidates scramble.
