BOE District Boundaries Effective January 5, 2015

The BOE is comprised of four districts each with a population of approximately 9.5 million people. Voters from each district elect a Board Member as their representative. The fifth Board Member is the State Controller, who is elected statewide.

Boundaries for state Assembly, Senate, Congressional, and Board of Equalization (BOE) districts are redrawn every ten years to address changes to California's population. This process is called redistricting.

In 2011, the California Citizens Redistricting Commission drew new district boundaries for the Assembly, Senate, Congressional and Board of Equalization (BOE) based on 2010 federal census data.

The new boundaries for the BOE districts were effective January 5, 2015, after the November 4, 2014 general election and the new Board Members took office.

You may view the final certified maps for the new BOE districts at we draw the lines.
