The Citizens Redistricting Commission was established when voters approved Proposition 11, the Voters First Act redistricting initiative, in November 2008. The CalChamber-supported reform measure allows the citizens of California—rather than the legislators—to draw legislative districts, thereby eliminating the conflict of interest in the current system. This process makes California a national leader in redistricting reform.

The 2012 elections will be the first to reflect the redrawing of districts that will be in place through 2020.
