Early release of – POSSIBLE – new California redistricting maps – all new lines for Benicia

Possible new alignments and their probable representatives for Benicia

By Roger Straw, October 26, 2021
[UPDATE: See the San Francisco Chronicle, Bay Area’s congressional districts look wildly different in first glimpse of new maps. Oct. 27]

Today we discovered an early release of what I understand COULD BE the final redistricting maps for California – from the We Draw The Lines website, https://www.wedrawthelinesca.org/

BREAKING NEWS – Benicia would be in ALL new districts with new representatives!

About Benicia in these visualizations…

I’m far from expert on this, but here’s my best interpretation of what I found in the visualizations –

I’m unclear who our CA Senator would be in what seems to me a rather weird new district, maybe still Dodd.  Download: Page 12 from SD Visualization Slides VSD_NAPABYRON_1027.pdf

    • Walnut Grove, Isleton, and delta area
