What is redistricting?

Every 10 years, districts on the federal, state and local levels must be redrawn to ensure each district is substantially equal in population. This process, called redistricting, is important in ensuring each fair representation for every person. Georgetown County is responsible for drawing County Council Districts. School Board members also use the same district lines as County Council. On the county level, redistricting helps ensure every council member represents the same number of constituents. Based on the 2020 census, every Georgetown County Council district should have as close to 9,058 residents as possible.
