Ward Redistricting

Redistricting is the process of adjusting the boundaries of voting districts every ten years following the decennial census, in order to ensure that representation mirrors population shifts. For Midpen, this means evaluating and adjusting the boundaries of its seven wards.

Every 10 years, following the federal census, Midpen’s board of directors is required by law to ensure the District’s seven wards remain substantially equal in population.
