Final vote on agenda for Wednesday.

Efforts to redraw Santa Barbara County’s supervisorial districts based on the results of the 2020 census are almost complete.

The Santa Barbara County Citizen's Independent Redistricting Commission is set to vote on a final map for the five districts Wednesday night.

The commission narrowed it down to one map after a marathon, all-day session Saturday in which they tweaked some of the boundaries.

The Wednesday night meeting at the County Hall of Administration will be open to the public, and also can be watched online via Zoom.
