Redistricting 2021 (Archive)

Note: The City of Murrieta completed the Redistricting process on March 1, 2022. This webpage is being preserved through March 1, 2032 (10 years) for informational purposes pursuant to Government Code Section 21608.


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.
