The following responses were provided by EID General Counsel Tom Cumpston.

Q.1. Why is EID required to redistrict and how frequently must it be done?

EID Redistricting Process Advisory Committee Formed

Placerville, Calif. El Dorado Irrigation District (District) has initiated the process of completing its mandatory legal duty to adjust its division boundaries, using the 2010 census as a basis, to ensure that population is evenly distributed among the District’s five divisions and the other criteria specified by the California Elections Code 22000(a) are considered. On February 28, 2011, the EID Board of Directors authorized General Counsel Tom Cumpston to form an advisory committee made up of members from each of EID’s five divisions to develop recommendations for redistricting. Once recommendations are developed, proactive public outreach will be conducted to help guide the redistricting effort.


Five individuals with diverse backgrounds and strong ties to the community from each of the five divisions were selected to serve on the Redistricting Advisory Committee, along with Cumpston who will serve as staff liaison.
