ABOUT THE REDISTRICTING PROCESS
Redistricting occurs every ten years after the U.S. Census is completed. District boundaries for federal, state and local elected offices are redrawn to reflect new population growths and equalize district populations. By law, counties must adopt their new boundaries by or before December 15, 2021.
ABOUT THE REDISTRICTING ADVISORY COMMITTEE
RAC21 members serve in a planning and outreach capacity, helping identify communities of interest, ensuring the integrity of those neighborhoods, and making sure they are maintained geographically within the confines of federal and state laws governing Redistricting.
