2022-2032 Council-School Board Redistricting

2022-2032 Wasatch County Council Redistricting Information

Every ten (10) years, after the U.S. Decennial Census and the State of Utah's Congressional, Legislature, and State School Board Redistricting activities, the Wasatch County Clerk's Office develops redistricting proposals to present to the Wasatch County Council. These districts will serve as the geographic districts for County Council seats C, D, E, F & G and the Wasatch County Board of Education districts for the next ten (10) years. The County Council ultimately adopts a proposed district map as the official district boundaries.

Historically these geographic districts have been given names associated with their current location such as Heber North, Heber South, Midway, County East, and County South. These names suggest an implied geographic area requirement for each district. This implied limitation does not exist in County Code. The geographic districts are referred to by the letter C, D, E, F, and G. Council seats A and B are at-large seats that serve the whole County. Hereafter, the districts will be referenced by their assigned letter and not a geographic name.

Once a new district map is adopted, new voting precincts are then generated and submitted by the County Clerk to the County Council to be adopted for the coming election year. Voting precincts can be revised and updated yearly as needed.

Five (5) redistricting proposals have been generated with one (1) proposal being identified as the preferred. The proposals are shown below in pdf form.
