Districting Outreach Services



By-district elections are becoming increasingly common in local government agencies throughout California. The California Voting Rights Act, passed in 2001, was the impetus for much of this change. Today, more than 300 local government agencies have districts of some form, and the number continues to rise as local government agencies are compelled to settle lawsuits or avoid legal battles.

Tripepi Smith is experienced in helping local governments execute the community outreach and engagement required for district formation and redistricting processes. We have worked extensively with agencies to:

  • Project manage the entire process
  • Launch and update websites
  • Manage social media
  • Write and distribute press releases
  • Produce creative elements from flyers to animated videos
  • Plan community meetings and public forums
  • Facilitate in-person or virtual meetings and workshops
  • Conduct targeted outreach campaigns
  • Adhere to state communication and outreach requirements

We’ve even organized a conference on local redistricting for nearly 200 local government practitioners.

The combined talent of our policy experts and in-house design team delivers professional communications that make our clients proud and better inform the public about this complex process. Tripepi Smith has the skills and experience to help local governments implement successful outreach strategies for district formation and redistricting outreach.

Tripepi Smith stands ready to help give everyone a voice in drawing district lines.
