It’s going to be a busy year.
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 community education and outreach initiatives for district formation and redistricting processes. We have worked extensively with agencies on their district public forums, created districting information portals and 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.
The 2020 Census is going to require the vast majority of current by-district agencies to redistrict in 2021. It’s going to be a busy year. Get in touch with Tripepi Smith President Ryder Todd Smith (626.536.2173 | Ryder@TripepiSmith.com) to start planning.
