City Council Redistricting

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Houston City Council voted October 12 to approve and adopt a redistricting plan that will establish new boundaries of single-member City Council districts effective January 2024.

The redistricting plan was developed based on 2020 Census data, redistricting criteria approved by City Council, public input as well as analysis by the Planning and Development Department, the City's Demographer, and the City’s legal counsel.

Census 2020 data showed that the distribution of population among current City Council districts is materially imbalanced, thus requiring redistricting to comply with the "one-person, one-vote" equal population principle established by the U.S. Constitution.

City Council undertook the process of redistricting in 2022 to establish new boundaries more than a year before the November 2023 General Election. This will allow prospective City Council candidates to verify residency eligibility to run in a single-member district before the November 2023 General Election filing period. The new district boundaries will be used for the purpose of electing District Council Members at the City General Election to be held on November 7, 2023, and will go into effect for terms of office beginning on January 2, 2024.

“Representation matters, and redistricting requires tough decisions that will affect our Council districts for the next 10 years. The law requires us to balance the populations of our Council districts and that is what we accomplished after much thoughtful discussion,” said Mayor Sylvester Turner. “This is a complicated process with many moving parts, and I fully appreciate all the feedback we received from residents and civic groups, as well as the hard work from of our redistricting experts and Planning Department employees.”
