Ward Redistricting

Following the federal census every ten years, Midpen’s board of directors was required by law to ensure that the geographic areas, or “wards”, which our seven publicly elected board member represent, remain substantially equal in population. The process is called redistricting, and for Midpen it meant evaluating and adjusting the boundaries of our seven wards to ensure that representation mirrors population shifts.

After a six-month public outreach process, the Midpen board of directors adopted the map that will be used in the November 8, 2022 general election at its March 23 meeting.

The 2020 redistricting project aimed to evaluate and adjust Midpen ward boundaries to ensure all statutory requirements are met, along with additional goals raised by the board and issues raised by the public.

The Ward Comparison web mapping application provides a swipe tool to compare Midpen's new wards to previous wards. Just slide the vertical bar side-to-side. You can also search for your address to see if your ward has changed.
