My Shelby County


Every decade, following the U.S. Census, Shelby County updates its maps for County Commission and School Board districts. The new boundaries must be roughly equal in populations and observe established redistricting guidelines that conform with federal, state and local directives. The Shelby County Commission is responsible for redistricting. The commission has appointed an Ad hoc redistricting committee to review proposals, evaluate mapping plans, and recommend a plan to the full commission for adoption. The Shelby County Commission will accept final recommendations from the redistricting committee and vote on the final district plan in November.   

How to Participate

After district maps are drafted, community meetings and online forums will be provided for review, comments, and possible adjustments of the preliminary district lines.

What is redistricting?

Redistricting is the process of redrawing boundaries for political offices to reduce differences in population between different districts. Most of the country redistricts occur every ten years following the Census.
