REAPPORTIONMENT, REDISTRICTING AND REPRECINCTING
There have been many changes which have impacted our elections in Polk County and as well as the rest of the United States. These changes were reapportionment, redistricting and reprecincting, which were done in the spring of 2022.
Reapportionment: As required by the U.S. Constitution, every 10 years a count is made of every person in the country by the Census Bureau. Population counts are used to decide how many congressional seats each state gets in the U.S. House of Representatives. As a result of the Census, Florida gained one more seat for a total of 28. Those 28 congressional seats combined with our 2 U.S. Senate seats equals 30 electoral votes for Florida.
Redistricting: It is the responsibility of each State Legislature to use these population counts to create the actual congressional districts that contain approximately an equal number of people. The legislature used these counts to redraw the State Senate and State House districts.
Reprecincting: All of these district line changes must then be reflected in the county precinct lines that are used by the Elections office to determine where a person votes and what ballot they will receive.
Web sites: These websites have information about census, redistricting and elections.
