Process

GIS Redistricting Website Screenshot (PNG) Opens in new windowIn celebration of GIS Day on November 17, the Peoria County GIS Team launched a new website explaining the Redistricting Process and its role in Peoria County. Learn more about the process and view the newly-proposed County district boundaries at https://bit.ly/PCRedistrictingExplained.

Every 10 years following the decennial census, legislative bodies must redraw their boundaries to take into account population change. For the Peoria County Board, this means its 18 districts must be redrawn to accommodate changes. The 2020 census population of Peoria County is 181,830. Each of the 18 districts comprises approximately 10,000 people.

The proposed map was built using census block data and took into account demographics and jurisdictional boundaries of local entities, such as cities and townships. The board has until December 31, 2021, to approve a new map of its 18 districts that reflects the change in population. Voter registration data was expressly not used.
