Every 10 years, following the United States census, new boundaries must be established for County Board districts that reflect the new population estimates.
This year the redistricting process has been delayed because of COVID-19. The delay in data will create a condensed timeline for counties to finish their district maps. Districts must be complete before November 23 which is when county and municipal clerks are required to notify the 2022 spring election.
