As required by federal and state laws and guidelines, county commission districts must be redrawn every 10 years based on the decennial census to ensure all commission districts have approximately the same population in each district to comply with the “one person, one vote” principle.
The Harris County commissioners met with the state’s Legislative and Congressional Reapportionment Office on Wednesday, January 5, 2022 to redraw the five commission districts. After thoughtful discussions, a final map was produced and approved by the Board.
The approved commission district map was submitted to the county’s local legislative delegation for them to enter as local legislation in the 2022 General Assembly. The General Assembly has approved the redistricting map and the Governor has signed it. The new commission district map is now the official map.
