That's easy, you say? Don't be so sure; the boundaries are about to change. Every 10 years, following the U.S. Census, the county is required to redraw the lines to balance the population. With extra people showing up in both the Fifth and Second Districts this past decade, you can expect the borders to shift somewhat.
The job of drawing the new squiggles will be performed by the Humboldt County Redistricting Committee -- which includes Registrar of Voters Carolyn Crnich, Sheriff Mike Downey, District Attorney Paul Gallegos and Assessor Mari Wilson -- and they're welcoming public input in a series of meetings.
