10/14/2021. Redistricting is in process in Nash! Draft county commission maps are expected to be discussed at the Nov. 1 commissioners’ meeting (start time 9am, Commissioners Room, 3rd Fl, 120 W. Washington St., Nashville). Nash is working with the Brooks Pierce law firm to ensure they follow all the rules.
Rocky Mount City Council is also moving forward. They will hold a public meeting on city maps on Monday, Oct. 18 at 4pm in the Nash Room, 2nd Fl, Rocky Mount Event Center. Draft City Council maps can be reviewed at RockyMountNC.gov/redistricting. Rocky Mount is working with the Local Redistricting Service to make sure they’re following the rules.
9/6/2021. Nash County Commission districts will have to be redrawn by November 17, in order for candidates to file for the 2022 election in December. Analysis of the new Census data by Fair Counties NC shows that Nash’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%. Nash’s districts are off by 15.4%! Nash 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 Nash County. ———— View Nash county district population statistics and more at davesredistricting.org — Nash County.
