Redistricting discussion Feb. 10 at Pinal County Board of Supervisors meeting

Posted

A work session on redistricting using decennial Census data is planned at the Feb. 10 meeting of the Pinal County Board of Supervisors.

It begins at 9:30 a.m. in the Board of Supervisors hearing room at the Pinal County Administrative Complex, 135 N. Pinal St. in Florence.

To preserve the one-person, one-vote requirement of the U.S. Constitution, any jurisdiction that elects public officials from a defined area must adjust the shapes of those areas or districts after every federal census to re-equalize population, according to a presentation to be given Wednesday.

The U.S. Census Bureau is to release population data in April. Two series of public meetings are to be held in districts from May to August to solicit public feedback, with a final plan adopted by supervisors on or before Dec. 1, according to county records.
