Decennial Redistricting

WHAT IS REDISTRICTING?

Every ten years, local governments use new census data to redraw electoral district boundaries to reflect changes in the local population. The primary and overarching intent of the redistricting process is to adjust district boundaries to ensure all residents across the County are equitably represented and provide confidence their voices will be heard through the ballot box.  

  Florida Constitution, Article VIII, Section 1

  Florida Statutes, Chapter 124.01 (3)

GENERAL TIMELINE

Decennial redistricting is based on population data collected by the U.S. Census Bureau. Because the Census Bureau is releasing data extremely late this cycle, a normally ten-month process will be condensed to approximately four months. The following schedule reflects Nassau County's intended timeline for completing the process.

Civic engagement, public participation, data & analysis, and thorough comprehension of rational local policy conditions are integral to properly executing this critical public duty. As such, the Preliminary Electoral Redistricting Report is intended to provide information and solicit feedback from County residents and other interested parties. The feedback will provide insights for the redistricting efforts to ensure equitable representation for all residents over the coming decade. Please feel free to engage and learn more about the electoral redistricting process, ask questions, and provide comments related to the various options on how the electoral districts could be redrawn.
