It's Redistricting Time — What You Can Expect For Cache Valley

Another 10 years has passed, meaning it is time to redraw district boundaries — and this time around there’s a way for residents to get involved.

The Utah Legislative Redistricting Committee will visit Cache Valley on Thursday to discuss redistricting maps proposed both by local representatives and the public. The meeting will start at 7 p.m. Sept. 9 at Mt. Logan Middle School.

 

Because the populations in different regions grow at different rates and districts need to have as close to the same number of residents as possible, districts need to be redrawn periodically. The Utah Legislature will use data from the U.S. Census to determine the size of congressional, state Senate, state House of Representatives and state board of education districts.
