Carson City is redrawing its ward boundaries in light of the 2020 Census. The city released the proposed maps with a community survey Thursday afternoon.
Residents are invited to view the maps and participate in the survey through www.carson.org/redistricting2021. The map shows current ward boundaries drawn in red, with proposed ward boundaries shaded in green, pink, yellow, and blue, each corresponding to one of Carson City’s four wards.
The survey will be open until Nov. 30. It consists of a blank comment submission box for residents to provide their feedback.
Redistricting balances the population in each ward and determines voting districts. It is conducted at the state and local level in conjunction with the Federal Census.
The Carson City Board of Supervisors will consider the proposed map at its public meetings on Dec. 16, 2021, and Jan. 6, 2022.
If a resident does not have access to a computer, the proposed map and a paper public comment form will be available by appointment only at the County Clerk’s Office located at 885 E. Musser St., Ste. 1025. Appointments will be available beginning Nov. 18 and ending Nov. 30.
The Carson City Clerk’s office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., closed on holidays. Contact the Carson City Clerk’s office at 775-887-2087 prompt 2 to schedule an appointment.
