Redistricting is the process of redrawing the boundaries of election districts. This is done every 10 years in the United States, after completion of the decennial census. The City of Apple Valley completed its redistricting process on March 24, 2022.
As the population changes, congressional and legislative district boundaries are redrawn in order to give all persons within the state equal representation. Cities must then establish their precincts to conform to these new boundaries.
In addition to the new district boundaries and population, Apple Valley also considers factors such as the number of registered voters, voting history by precinct, polling sites, anticipated growth, and impact on voters.
Precinct boundary changes will affect approximately 20% of the City’s total population, or about 7,472 registered voters.
11 of Apple Valley’s 16 precincts have new boundaries. The boundaries for precinct numbers 1, 2, 3, 7, and 8 did not change.
Only 2 of Apple Valley’s 16 precincts had a number change. Former precinct 5A (Hope Church) is now precinct 16, and former precinct 5B (Bethel’s Rock Church) is now precinct 5.
