Citizens Districting 10-1 (a.k.a. “Prop 3″) established an Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission (“ICRC”) to draw the maps for Austin’s 10 new city council districts. The commission will have 14 citizens volunteer members. Politicians, consultants, and paid operatives are specifically prevented from serving.
Latest: The Applicant Review Panel (also a part of CD10-1) has now qualified and selected 60 candidates from the ~500 original volunteers. See the official list here.
- Each city council member can strike one candidate.
- The Applicant Review Panel randomly selects the first 8 ICRC members from the remaining candidates. This drawing will take place May 22 at 12:30 pm in the Boards and Commission Room at City Hall.
- Those 8 ICRC members select the last 6 ICRC members, assuring diversity of the ICRC

How we’ll help: Austinites for Geographic Representation (AGR), the grassroots coalition behind Proposition 3, announced formation of a citizens committee to help assure Austin’s 2014 elections are held as mandated by Prop 3. The “AGR CD10-1 Advisory Committee” will advise and assist city council in properly and effectively implementing the Citizens Districting 10-1 election system, which Austinites passed as Prop 3.
WHAT: CD10-1, The Citizens’ Plan: Citizens Districting 10-1 (a.k.a. “Prop 3″) is backed by Austin’s largest and most diverse grassroots political coalition, was defined in an open process with input from hundreds of Austinites, is endorsed by 30 diverse Austin organizations, and was put on the ballot by more than 30,000 citizen signatures.
