Redistricting

The Sedgwick County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) is conducting a redistricting process. Sedgwick County typically adjusts its commission district boundaries every ten years. Each commission district needs to be equivalent in population with borders that are as compact as possible. Mapping software used by the Department of Geographic Information Systems created eight scenarios that were presented to the BOCC who are now discussing with the public. In order to adopt a new district boundary map, it has to be voted and approved by the BOCC through a resolution. The BOCC voted and approved a deadline for this decision to be made no later than Dec. 15 at the Nov. 17 regular meeting.

AD Hoc Redistricting Committee

On Nov. 19, the BOCC approved a resolution creating the Ad Hoc Redistricting Committee. The Redistricting Committee is comprised of 5 members appointed by the BOCC, 5 members appointed by the Sedgwick County Republican Party and 5 members appointed by the Sedgwick County Democratic Party. The purpose of the committee is to recommend to the Board a map for the redistricting of Sedgwick County into five County Commission Districts based upon the 2020 United States Census data.
