For Immediate Release
SAN FRANCISCO, Wednesday, April 28, 2021 – The San Francisco Elections Commission invites residents of San Francisco to apply for appointment to one of three seats of the nine-member Redistricting Task Force.  The Redistricting Task Force is comprised of three appointees by the Board of Supervisors, three by the Mayor, and three by the Elections Commission. These applications are for the three seats appointed by the Elections Commission.

Following each decennial census, San Francisco redraws the district lines of the Board of Supervisor districts to account for population changes. The Task Force works with an outside consultant to rebalance the population counts in each supervisorial district. The Task Force will make decisions on district lines based on the federal census and in accordance with the law and the criteria established in the Charter of the City and County of San Francisco Section 13.110, and make adjustments as appropriate based on public input at public hearings. The Task Force will convene no earlier than August 1, 2021 and must complete its work no later than April 15, 2022.

The Elections Commission has established the following minimum criteria for applicants:

1. Resident of San Francisco and 18 Years of age or older per City Charter 4.101(b);

2. Has not been a candidate for political office or paid by a San Francisco candidate campaign in the last 5 years;

3. Has general knowledge of San Francisco’s neighborhoods, and geography;

4. Has a flexible schedule to attend meetings;

5. Has no conflict of interest as defined in the Conflict of Interest and Other Prohibited Activities for

City officers (San Francisco Campaign and Conduct Code 3.1-100 – 3.1.500 and Chapter 2); and

6. Is not currently a direct hire employee of an elected official in San Francisco.

Interested persons should complete the application (available in English, Spanish, Chinese, and Tagalog), which may be found on the home page for the Elections Commission https://sfgov.org/electionscommission/. Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. on June 1, 2021.
