As COVID-19 Slows Census, Fmr. Gov. Schwarzenegger, Common Cause, League of Women Voters CA Urge Extension of Redistricting Deadlines

League of Women Voters of California

The League supports the Legislature’s extension request because it is a common sense and nonpartisan response to the delay in gathering and reporting census data caused by COVID-19 public health crisis. The California Citizens Redistricting Commission simply cannot create well-considered, fairly-drawn maps within two weeks of receiving census data. We urge the Court to extend the deadline to ensure that the Commission has the proper time to fulfill its function in the way intended by California voters when the Commission was first created. - Carol Moon Goldberg, LWV of California President
