Following every federal census, each state in the nation must redraw the boundaries of its political districts to accurately reflect new population statistics. California voters passed ballot measures in 2008 and 2010 that transferred this responsibility from elected officials to the people and established a nonpartisan Citizens Redistricting Commission. The current 9th District was drawn by the Commission, which is scheduled to certify final maps on August 15, 2011.
