What is redistricting?
Redistricting is the process of redrawing the boundaries of election districts to ensure that the people of each district are equally represented.
Redistricting is done in the United States after the completion of Congressional reapportionment, which decides how many seats each state has in the 435 member House of Representatives. Reapportionment happens following the Decennial Census.
What is the County responsible for?
Local governments are responsible for redistricting other election districts:
- County boards are responsible for redistricting county commissioner districts
- City councils are responsible for redistricting city wards
- School board are responsible for redistricting board member districts
In addition, during the redistricting time period, cities and townships will establish (or reestablish) their precinct boundaries as part of the redistricting process, as will counties that have unorganized territory. The county auditor coordinates redistricting processes with cities, townships, school districts, and the Secretary of State.
