Why should I care about redistricting?

Redistricting determines which neighborhoods and communities are grouped together into a district for purposes of electing a council representative. The County Council will seek input in selecting the next district map, which will be in place for the next decade. You have an opportunity to share with Council your thoughts on how district lines should be drawn to best represent your community. Three public meetings have been scheduled to present draft maps and gather public input. Public comments may also be submitted online at gtcounty.org/redistricting. Public input meeting dates are as follows:

  • Jan. 18, 2022, 6 p.m. at Choppee Regional Recreation Center
  • Jan. 19, 2022, 6 p.m. at Howard Auditorium
  • Jan. 24, 2022, 6 p.m. at Waccamaw Regional Recreation Center
