Frequently Asked Questions

What is redistricting?

Redistricting is the process of enacting updated Town Council district boundaries.

How often does redistricting happen?

District lines are redrawn every 10 years following the completion of the United States census.

Why is redistricting important?

Redistricting is an opportunity to ensure every resident is equally represented in their government. This is accomplished by working to evenly distribute the population across each district.

What is a Census block and why does it matter?

A census block is the smallest geographic census unit. These are used to identify where populations reside. Blocks can be bounded by visible features—such as roads, streams, or railroad tracks —or by invisible boundaries, such as property lines, school districts, or city limits. Additionally, rules and laws require these to stay intact during the process and can only be split in certain circumstances.

Who decides what block my house is in?

The Census Bureau, part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, determines the census blocks and they are generated by a software program based on the data input by the bureau.

Can you consider growth either from the Census to now or in the future?

Courts look to the most recent census count to determine whether districts have roughly equal population. While projected growth may be considered by the legislative body, the districts must still be drawn with roughly equal population based on the most recent census and projected growth cannot be included in the equal population analysis.
