Riverside County Redistricting Memo

As the Riverside County Board of Supervisors begins to finalize its new district map for adoption, the County must adopt a map that respects Latino voters and other communities of color that have grown over the past ten years.




Riverside County鈥檚 growth over the decade was聽exclusively driven by non-whites, who increased to 67% of the county population from 60% in聽2010. In total, communities of color grew by over 300,000 people. Simultaneously, the white聽alone, non-Hispanic population decreased by over 80,000.聽Riverside聽County must adopt a map that respects Latino voting power and adopt a districting plan for the聽Board of Supervisors that has at least two-Latino majority districts.
