The Kenosha County Redistricting Committee on Aug. 31, 2021, released two alternative preliminary maps of County Board districts redrawn in response to recently received 2020 Census data.
The redistricting process occurs every 10 years, to ensure equal representation on the county, state and federal levels of government.
The Redistricting Committee will meet again on Sept. 7, when it is expected to select a recommended map that will be presented to the County Board at its Sept. 15 meeting. A public hearing on the recommended map will immediately precede the board meeting that evening at 6:30 p.m. in the Board Chambers on the third floor of the County Administration Building, 1010 56th St., Kenosha.
The board will take up approval of that tentative plan at that board meeting. The tentative map will then be transmitted to the county’s municipalities for the purposes of drawing municipal wards.
The County Board will then adopt a final map in early November, which will be in effect for the spring 2022 election.
