Due to the delay in data collection by the Bureau of the Census as a result of the 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic, the Legislature of California petitioned the state's Supreme Court to allow the Citizens Redistricting Commission more time to produce the state's congressional, state legislative, and Board of Equalization districts.
The Court granted the legislature's petition and pushed back the deadline for release of maps. Preliminary maps must be complete by November 1, 2021, and final maps must be enacted by December 15, 2021.
