The City of Murrieta has five districts, or regions, with a City Council member representing each. All cities with city council districts must engage in “redistricting” every 10 years following the census count in order to ensure that each district continues to have equal populations.
In 2017, the Murrieta City Council transitioned to a district-based voting system to elect its City Council Members. To learn more about the history of the districting process in Murrieta, visit the 2017 Districting webpage. The City of Murrieta must now ensure that no changes are needed in light of the new 2020 federal census data.
On November 16, 2021 during the Redistricting - Introduction of Ordinance Public Hearing the City Council introduced Ordinance No. 568-21 to adopt the district boundaries outlined in Draft Map B.
