Redistricting is the process of redrawing district lines so as to evenly distribute population among the five county districts. This is done every 10 years following the completion of the Census.
The 2020 Census data will help us identify areas in the county where the population has grown. We will use this data to create proposed maps which balance the five districts. After a period of review and public feedback, the County Commissioners will select a map to be submitted to the State in order to become law.
Redistricting of state and federal offices is also happening at this time. Once the new county and state maps have become law, voters of Glynn County will receive a new precinct card if their district or precinct has changed. New precinct cards will likely be mailed in early 2022. Notices will also be placed in the paper and online once the process is complete.
This page is designed to provide the public with information throughout the process. Links to news updates, proposed maps, Census data, local/state redistricting information, and a public comment portal will be posted here.
