After each decennial Census, the Legislature redraws the districts from which Florida voters elect their state respresentatives,
state senators, and members of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Redistricting is the redrawing of congressional and state legislative districts to adjust for uneven growth rates in different
parts of the state. Districts determine which voters participate in which elections.
Reapportionment is the redistribution of seats in the United States House of Representatives among the 50 states, based on the decennial census.
Each state gets at least one seat. Effective with elections in 2022 Florida gets 28 representatives in the U.S. House of Representatives, an increase of one from last decade.
Two U.S. Senators represent the entire state.
Part of the Supervisor of Elections' role in redistricting is to review and provide suggestions for the county's Voting Tabulation Districts to the House and Senate Committee on Reapportionment.
This process is designed to help keep areas such as subdivisions and apartment complexes within cohesive districts.
The Supervisor will redraw precinct lines within all districts throughout the county as needed. All changes will be submitted to the Board of County Commissioners for approval.
The Supervisor is required to notify the Secretary of State within 30 days of any precinct changes and furnish a map with the precinct boundaries.
New Voter Information Cards will be mailed to all voters prior to the August 23, 2022 Primary Election.
Voters may participate in the process by attending public hearings, and submitting comments and ideas to their legislators.
