Agenda Item Text:
An overview of the duties and responsibilities of the Redistricting Advisory Commission, as charged by the Board of Supervisors
The Redistricting Advisory Commission is responsible for coordinating and compiling data and public feedback to draw the voting precincts, Supervisors' Districts, Cochise Community College districts, and Justices of the Peace districts based on the most recent census. The RAC shall adhere to the Guiding Principles approved by the Board of Supervisors for Redistricting. The concept of one-person, one-vote dictates that districts should be roughly equal in population. Other factors to be considered are the federal Voting Rights Act, district shape, geographical features, respect for communities of interest and competitiveness. The RAC shall also hold public hearings to gain feedback, and prepare district maps with recommendations for Board consideration.
