On March 23, 2022, the Westminster City Council completed the redistricting process by adopting an ordinance that establishes a new City district map. The ordinance establishes the boundary lines for each newly created district, implements by-district elections of four City Council Members, and establishes an at-large Mayor.
The Westminster City Council also adopted an ordinance that established the boundary lines for a five City Council Members district map with a rotating mayor. This ordinance will only take effect if a June 7, 2022, ballot measure to eliminate the directly elected mayor and establish five council districts with a rotating mayor position passes. Learn more about the ordinances and selected maps at Redistrictwestminster.com/Selected-Map.
While the redistricting process is complete, this site remains live to serve as an archive of the election changes including the schedule, draft maps, and resources.
The Redistricting Process
Every 10 years, the City of Westminster must reestablish the boundaries for City Council districts. Coinciding with data released from the U.S. Census Bureau after conducting the census, the resulting district boundaries must be balanced in population and in accordance with local, state, and federal rules governing the redistricting process.
The City Council will be holding public hearings and several community workshops to receive public input on suggested adjustments to district lines.
SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING NUMBER OF DISTRICTS: A measure will be placed on the June 2022 election ballot to ask the voters to weigh in on whether the seat of mayor shall be elected or appointed. It is currently elected at large. If the voters choose to make the mayor seat appointed, the number of districts will increase from four to five. Therefore, the current redistricting process allows you to draw for a four-district map to reflect the current mapping AND a proposed five-district map to reflect an appointed mayoral seat if it passes. Please note the public hearings and workshops will discuss both the four- and five-district compositions.
