What District Am I In?
DISTRICT INFORMATION: the County of Butte is divided into five supervisorial districts. The districts vary in size to provide for an equal distribution of the County's population, not geographical size. District division based on population is designed to give all citizens of the County equal representation on the County Board. "Whenever the United States Census shows that the population of any supervisorial district exceeds or lacks more than twenty-three percent as compared with the population in another district or districts, then the Board shall change the boundaries of such district or districts so that the population of each district shall be so nearly equal as possible." Butte County Charter Article II, Section 6. District lines can change, and consideration of this process takes place following Census years.
SUPERVISOR INFORMATION: each district elects a Supervisor to represent that district on the County Board of Supervisors. The term of office for a Supervisor is 4 years, and there is no limit on the number of terms a member may serve. Supervisors must be a resident of the district they represent at the time they are elected, and they must remain a resident of that district while in office. At the beginning of each year the Board elects a new Chair and Vice Chair.
