Redistricting Commission

The 2021 Redistricting Commission was appointed pursuant to the prescriptions of Section 305 of the County Charter, which states, in pertinent part, that "[T]he boundaries of Council districts shall be reestablished in 1982 and every tenth year thereafter. Whenever district boundaries are to be reestablished the Council shall appoint, not later than February 1 of the year prior to the year in which redistricting is to be effective, a commission on redistricting."

The Council adopted CR-6-2021, appointing the 2021 members of the Redistricting Commission and charging this public body with the mission to "prepare, publish, and make available a plan of Council districts and shall present that plan, together with a report explaining it, to the Council by September 1, 2021..." and further prescribed in accordance with law that "the plan shall provide for Council districts that are compact, contiguous, and equal in population."

After receiving the plan of the Redistricting Commission, the Council shall hold a public hearing on the plan and if the Council passes no other law changing the proposal, then the plan, as submitted, shall become law, as of the last day of November, as an act of the Council.
