About the redistricting process 

Redistricting is the process of adjusting the boundaries of election districts for cities, counties, school boards and water agencies, following population shifts based on federal census data once every ten years. Western started the redistricting process in Fall 2021 by holding a public hearing to introduce the process and receive community input on proposed mapping options.
