In summary

California election districts have changed for 2022. Type in your address and find out your new legislative and congressional districts.

Hundreds of thousands of voters were shifted in the new California election districts drawn by the state’s independent redistricting commission. A bushel of state legislators are retiring or seeking another office in the 2022 election. Quite a few Californians have moved from one place within the state to another during the pandemic.

All the churn is changing which races and candidates will be on the ballot for each voter. It can all be very confusing.

At the same time, the 2022 California election is crucial: It could help determine if Democrats keep control of the U.S. House, and it will decide if Democrats keep their supermajority in the state Legislature. And the partisan balance will shape policies and priorities on major issues. 

So CalMatters put together a one-of-a-kind tool: You can type in your address and look up which of the 52 congressional, 80 state Assembly and 40 state Senate districts you have been in — and which districts you’ll be voting in for the June primary and November general election. You can also find out who your current representatives are, plus party registration information on both old and new districts.
