This message is to provide you with an update on the San Joaquin County (SJC) redistricting effort. We have recently received the updated 2020 census data from the State Data Center and will be using that information to redraw the boundaries of the county’s five supervisorial districts. This is a major milestone in the redistricting process! As a reminder, redistricting takes place every 10 years after the federal census, when district boundaries for federal, state, and local elected offices are redrawn to reflect new population data and shifting populations. This is important work because district lines can shape a community’s ability to elect the representative of their choice. Read on to learn more about what this means for your community and how you can get involved.
Here are some resources to learn more:
Residents of the county are invited to attend any of the upcoming public meetings either in-person or virtually, where they can learn more about the process, provide comments, and weigh in on how the maps should be drawn. The Redistricting Advisory Committee (RAC) meetings will be where the RAC will be drawing the district lines for the Board of Supervisor’s approval.
The meeting schedule is as follows:
Location: SJC Administration Building Board Chambers
44 N San Joaquin St, 6th Floor, Suite 627, Stockton, CA 95202

Schedule SJC representatives to present to your community group
SJC has a redistricting group who are well-versed about the redistricting process and are available to meet with any community groups to explain how they can participate in the process by drawing proposed lines for their districts. If you would like to arrange for a SJC Redistricting Group Representative to present virtually or in-person to your group, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to participate in redistricting and stay informed
SJC encourages county residents to participate in the process, including drawing their own districting boundaries online and submitting them to the county for consideration. We know that nobody knows the county better than those who call it home. We look forward to receiving your input!
To stay up to date with the latest information, we encourage you to visit our website, sign up for email updates, and follow SJC on Facebook and Twitter. We will also continue to reach out to local media, community-based organizations, and partners throughout the process to help us spread the word. As always, you can contact us at email@example.com with any questions about the redistricting process. Thank you for your interest in this important process, and we look forward to hearing from you.

DIGITAL COVID-19 VACCINE RECORD
The California Department of Public Health rolled out the State's vaccine digital verification system in June. Anyone can get access to a digital version of their COVID-19 vaccination card on their smart-phone if they need to show it to a business or other venue. To access your digital vaccine record, go to myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov, where you will enter your first and last name, date of birth, and the email or cell phone number associated with your vaccine record. You will be asked to create a 4-digit PIN. Click on the link and enter your PIN. You will then be able to see the QR code and the same information that appears on your paper vaccine card. The link to the QR code is valid for 24 hours. However, to avoid having to obtain a new QR every time you want to scan it somewhere, screen-shot the information once the digital record is received to have it available on your phone.
Have you received your vaccination yet? If not, here are two websites to help you book yours:
