From 1814 to 1985 the district also included Zollikon and the communities of today's Dietikon district - the so-called "rural communities of the Zurich district". A law tabled in March 1985 on the division of the district - under the premise of removing the (alleged) dominance of the rural communities by the overpopulated city - was passed with 57.5% yes-votes. While Zollikon then moved to the Meilen district on January 1, 1986 , resistance arose in the affected communities in the future Dietikon district. Due to a popular initiative which demanded that the division be abolished, there was a second vote in March 1988, which clearly failed with 34.8% yes votes. On July 1, 1989, the Dietikon district was formed.
