What is redistricting?

Every ten years after the decennial census the City of Toledo is required by the City Charter to redraw the City Council districts. These districts are required to follow the existing voting precinct lines and need to have a population count within 5% of each district. The census data is then used to determine the population shifts and change to modify the boundaries of the council districts.

The City of Toledo Reapportionment Committee is in the process of modifying these boundaries and is requesting public feedback.
