UPDATE: The Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners adopted updates to At Large and Single Member districts at the December 7, 2021 BCC meeting. See meeting details below.
A voter-approved amendment to the Pinellas County Charter requires the Redistricting Board to be established within 30 days of receipt of the census data from the State.
The Board reviews the census data and may present proposals to the County Commission to change Pinellas County Commissioner district boundaries or keep them the same based on the latest population data.
The Board's recommendations will go to the County Commission on November 9 and the Commission will adopt any redistricting plans at the December 7 meeting.
Redistricting is a process of redrawing legislative districts that happens every 10 years after the United States Census.
The Board is composed of 11 members, appointed by the County Commission. Seven members are nominated by each Commissioner from among residents of that Commissioner's district. The other four members are from the public at-large.
