Senate District 39

The 39th Senate District is located within San Diego County and includes most of the City of San Diego north of SR-94, the coastal cities of Coronado, Del Mar, and Solana Beach, and parts of unincorporated Rancho Santa Fe. The district is highly urbanized and contains the central economic hub of the county, downtown San Diego, as well as regional parks, lakes, and open space preserves. SD 39 is characterized by its commercial, business, and high-tech research industries, government center, major universities, naval and military operations, port and airport operations, tourist attractions, recreational beaches, and environmentally sensitive coastal areas. It includes a highly diverse region of ethnic enclaves including communities with high numbers of Asian and Pacific Islander individuals, a large LGBT community, and a wide range of socioeconomic levels.

Deferred Area of Senate District 39

Every 10 years after the US Census Data is released, the California Citizens Redistricting Commission draws new lines for representation that is reflective of the population changes. Senate districts have a unique issue that Assembly and Congressional districts do not have. Of the Senate districts established, only the even-numbered districts went into effect for the 2022 election cycle. The new odd-numbered districts will not go into effect until the 2024 election cycle. This means some members of the population do not have representation until 2024 when the next election cycle happens. These geographic areas are referred to as “deferred.” However, the Senate wants to ensure that anyone living in a deferred area is still represented by a California State Senator and therefore has been assigned a Senator to represent them until the next election occurs in 2 years.
