See which City Council district you live in and the updated district map for voting in November 2022.
Look up your City Council district to see what may have changed for you with the new district map.
Berkeley's eight City Council districts were updated during the redistricting process that happens every 10 years to address population changes. Your polling place or voting schedule for the November election may have changed.
The new map was drawn using public input at the direction of the Independent Redistricting Commission. The commission was a group of Berkeley residents selected to create politically neutral boundaries for the City’s eight Council districts.

Voting in the November 2022 election
Your polling place (set by the Registrar of Voters closer to the election) may change. And, due to a new California law, every voter will have a ballot mailed to them.
The new district maps will be used for the November 2022 election. If you live in an area that changed from one district to another, you may have a different schedule for electing your councilmember:
- Districts 1, 4, 7, and 8 vote in 2022
- Districts 2, 3, 5, and 6 vote in 2024
Voting for other Berkeley offices (School Board, Rent Board, Auditor, and Mayor) is not affected by the new maps.
Every level of government goes through the redistricting process after the U.S. Census. Many agencies adjusted their boundaries, so you may be in a different district for special districts and regional and state offices.
Updated districts from redistricting
City Council districts are redrawn every 10 years, adjusting for population changes identified in the U.S. Census. Previously, City Council decided district boundaries, but this year, using public input, the Independent Redistricting Commission updated them and they are now in effect.
