REDISTRICTING

Redistricting is the process of redrawing district boundaries with a goal of equal voter representation. The City Charter requires that each of the eight city council districts have as near as practical the same population. Every 10 years, cities are required by Federal law to redraw their Council Member district boundaries based on the population counts from the Census. In 2022, the City of Seguin will be redrawing its Council Member districts and precinct boundaries based on the population count of the 2020 Census. The 2020 Census data showed Seguin’s population as 29,433, a 16.9% increase in population from 25,175 residents in the 2010 census.

When re-districting is complete, the new boundaries will reflect how the City's population has changed to ensure each district has an equal number of voting residents per district (the largest to smallest district should not exceed 10%).  Based on the 2020 Census data, the city’s ideal council district is now 3,679, (total of 29,433) people divided by eight single-member districts.

On December 7, 2021, a Resolution: Redistricting Criteria and Guidelines was approved by the City Council. 

The City has engaged Bickerstaff Health Delgado Acosta, LLP as redistricting counsel to coordinate this process. 

Public hearings will be held during upcoming Council meetings to provide input about the composition of districts, explain the process, share draft maps and approve a final map by June 2022.

As information becomes available, this webpage will be updated with documents, maps, and public meeting schedules.
