Citizens Invited to Give Input on Clark County Redistricting Plans

Residents are invited to share input into the decennial process of drawing the boundary lines for each of the seven Clark County Commission districts.

The redistricting process is undertaken every 10 years following the national Census in order to comply with state law, which requires Commission districts to be nearly equal in population. Rapid growth in population over the last decade has resulted in great variations in population across the County’s seven Commission districts. For instance, Commissioner Justin Jones’ District F is the largest with 365,567 residents while Commissioner William McCurdy II’s District D is the smallest, having 21 percent fewer residents than District F with 287,626.

The information collected from the public will be provided to the Clark County Commission, which will vote on the new boundaries for the seven Commission districts. An ordinance governing redistricting will be introduced and adopted by the Commission. The process has been delayed this year due to the timing of the release of the Census and work needed to get maps completed.

Persons may submit comments or questions to redistricting@ClarkCountyNV.gov.
