Please join the King County Districting Committee at an upcoming community meeting about redrawing King County Council districts. The meetings are an opportunity to learn about how population has shifted in King County and to share your ideas and priorities for Council redistricting, which must be done to equalize population following each U.S. Census.
Monday, May 2, 6:30 p.m.
King County Courthouse Council Chambers
516 Third Avenue, 10th Floor
Seattle, WA 98104
As it considers what the new Council district boundaries should look like, the Committee must weigh many factors including city boundaries, natural features, and communities of related and mutual interest. Districts must be compact, contiguous, and composed of economic and geographic units.
After the public has had an opportunity to provide input, the Committee will create draft Council district maps and hold additional public meetings to discuss the plans.
The Districting Committee is only responsible for redrawing King County Council districts. A separate, state Redistricting Commission is responsible for redrawing Legislative and Congressional districts.
