Every ten years, following the US census, Hamilton County's electoral districts (County Commission and School Board) are redrawn to reflect changes in population and demographics. Every Hamilton County resident is affected by this process. In the past, this process has taken place behind closed doors with little public input. This lack of community involvement leads to partisan districts that divide neighborhoods, break apart communities and isolate the most vulnerable populations in Hamilton County.
How does redistricting affect Hamilton County?
- Redistricting affects the ability of voters (particularly minority voters) to cast meaningful ballots in local elections.
- Overtly partisan districts increase polarization and division in the community.
- District lines impact the allocation of tax dollars and government services.
Community-Led Redistricting Means:
- Protecting and affirming the voting rights of historically disenfranchised communities.
- Ensuring the process is open and transparent, and that elected representatives are responsive and accountable.
- Prioritizing the needs of neighborhoods and communities, not partisan political interests.
