At the December 15, 2021 city council meeting, the City Council adopted Ordinance No. 2218 (PDF) adopting the 2021 Council District map based on the 2020 census data and in accordance with the Fair and Inclusive Redistricting for Municipalities and Political Subdivisions (FAIR MAPS) Act (Elections Code § 21601-21609).

For the November 2022 election and every 4 years thereafter, only voters in Districts 1 and 5 will be voting for a candidate within their district.  In 2024, and every 4 years thereafter, voters in Districts 2, 3, and 4 will vote under the same procedures. The elected positions of City Clerk and City Treasurer will remain at-large and will be voted on in November 2022 and every 4 years thereafter. The term of office for all City elected positions will remain four years.  All voters will vote for City’s ballot measures in the election they were proposed.  Only voters within said districts will be eligible to vote for a candidate to represent their respective district.  Candidates for City Council must reside within the respective district they are running for.  

City of Monterey Park Redistricting Process

Every ten years, local governments use new census data to redraw their district lines to reflect how local populations have changed. Assembly Bill 849 (2019) requires cities and counties to engage communities in the redistricting process by holding public hearings and/or workshops and doing public outreach, including non- English speaking communities.  

What is redistricting?
Every ten years, districts must be redrawn so that each district is substantially equal in population. This process, called redistricting, is important in ensuring that each city councilmember represents about the same number of constituents. In Monterey Park, the City Council is responsible for drawing council districts. Redistricting is done using U.S. Census data, which is released around September 30, 2021.
Why does redistricting matter to me?
Redistricting determines which neighborhoods and communities are grouped together into a district for purposes of electing a councilmember.

The City Council will seek input in selecting the next district map for our City Council. You have an opportunity to share with the City Council how you think district boundaries should be drawn to best represent your community.

You can contact the City Clerk at (626) 307-1359 or via email at to find out more about how the process works.

What criteria will our City Council use when drawing district lines?
To the extent practicable, district lines will be adopted using the following criteria: (1) geographically contiguous districts (each city council district should share a common border with the next), (2) the geographic integrity of local neighborhoods or communities shall be respected in a manner that minimizes its division, (3) geographic integrity of a city shall be respected in a manner that minimizes its division, (4) easily identifiable boundaries that follow natural or artificial barriers (rivers, streets, highways, rail lines, etc.), and (5) lines shall be drawn to encourage geographic compactness. In addition, boundaries shall not be drawn for purposes of favoring or discriminating against a political party.

How will our City Council notify the public about redistricting?
The City Council will reach out to local media to publicize the redistricting process. Also, we will make a good faith effort to notify community groups of various kinds about the redistricting process. Our public hearings will be provided in applicable languages if residents submit a request in advance. The City Council will notify the public about redistricting hearings, post maps online before adoption, and create a dedicated web page for all relevant information about the redistricting process.

How can I get involved?
The City Council will be holding hearings to receive public input on where district lines should be drawn. The schedule for the hearings will be posted on the City’s website at 

You can also submit public comments, including suggested draft maps, by emailing:
