Anson County Redistricting News:

10/14/21. Anson’s County Commission has started the redrawing process. They have contracted with Centralina to provide redistricting consulting services, including preparation of up to 3 draft maps, which may be modified base on commission review. More information can be found in the 10/5/2021 BOCC Agenda PDF file, beginning on page 41.
9/6/2021. Anson County Commission districts will have to be redrawn by November 17, in order for candidates to file for the 2022 election. Analysis of the new Census data by Fair Counties NC shows that Anson’s district populations are now too far out of line due to changes over the past decade. Commission district population should be about equal so voters have an equal say. That’s what “one person, one vote” requires. The accepted guideline is that no local district should be more than 5% above or below the new county population per commissioner. Redrawing is a must if the highest and lowest deviation total more than 10%. Anson’s districts are off by over 28%! Anson County commissioners draw their own maps, just like legislators do, but voters deserve a say in how those districts are drawn. Ask your commissioners what the redrawing schedule will be, when draft maps will be available for public comment, and how you and your neighbors can make your voices heard. Tell them voters want a fair and open county redistricting process. Don’t let districts drawn behind closed doors silence your voice on the vital decisions your commissioners make for Anson County.
