Redistricting is the process of changing election district boundaries. The Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) appoints a Redistricting Committee charged with reviewing BOCC election districts and boundaries following the decennial census to account for population changes.

The Redistricting Committee will consider public input on the current structure of the BOCC election districts and formulate a recommendation to the BOCC on whether to:

  • Keep the current three election districts
  • Increase the number of election districts
  • Change how commissioners are elected (countywide or within their home election districts only)
  • Change how the president of the BOCC is elected, whether by registered voters for a four-year term or by the BOCC each year
