Legislative Redistricting Process Creates Precinct Changes for Orono Voters
Redistricting is the process of redrawing the boundaries of election districts to ensure that the people of each district are equally represented. It is typically done in the United States every ten years, after the completion of the decennial Census. According to Minnesota Statute section 204B.14, subd. 3 (d), City governments must reestablish all precincts after state redistricting.
Prior to the state legislative redistricting process, Orono was divided by State House Districts 33A and 33B which created the need for two separate precincts which were precinct 2 & 3A. Following the latest redistricting process, Orono is now wholly in State House District 45A. This creates further changes for Orono’s precinct boundaries and the number of polling places.
Hennepin County will be notifying all registered voters of their precinct changes in July 2022.
