Area Voting

Draft maps depict potential new trustee areas

The public is invited to a series of open house events to learn about changes to the way in which Delta College trustees are elected, and to comment on new proposed maps for each trustee area.

Each of the seven trustees lives in and represents a particular area of Delta’s 2,300-square-mile community college district. However, each trustee is currently elected by voters throughout the district.

Trustees decided last year to transition to area voting, in which voters will cast ballots only for the candidate within their area. The process also involves determining whether changes should be made for the maps that define those areas.

The open house events precede two public hearings scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on Aug. 6 and Aug 20 in the Board Room at the Horton Administration Building, 5151 Pacific Avenue in Stockton. To send comments electronically in advance of the hearings, email Valerie.stewart-green@deltacollege.edu.

There are three scenarios for how new trustee areas could be defined. Each scenario consists of a map of the entire district and a map for each of the seven potential trustee areas.

Statistical information about the draft maps can be seen here.

Draft A

Draft A is drawn to keep cities and towns (also called Census Places or Census Designated Places) whole within trustee areas. For cases in which, for population allowance purposes, this is not possible, major roads or water features are used as boundaries.

Draft B

Draft B is drawn, when possible, to use highways as boundaries for trustee areas. When this is not possible for population allowance purposes, major roads and city limits are used when practicable.
