The Merced County Board of Supervisors announced a schedule of local public meetings where county representatives will present new election maps reflecting new census numbers.
California requires counties to redistrict voting districts after each federal census. The population of Merced County increased by 21.5 percent under the 2010 census, but the growth wasn't uniform in the county's five supervisorial districts. The proposed map options reflect the changes to Merced County's population over the last decade.
