Drop in to speak to a staff member of the City of Madison Planning Department to learn more about the redistricting process!
Redistricting in the City of Madison is the process of redrawing the City's wards and alder districts. These boundaries are adjusted based on population changes that have occurred over the last decade. Through redistricting, the population within each alder district is equalized so residents across the City have equal representation on the Common Council. A similar process will be done at the county level for Supervisory districts and at the state level for Wisconsin’s State Assembly districts, State Senate districts and eight U.S. House districts.
