Redistricting is the process cities and towns go through periodically to determine district boundaries for Council districts. This determines which constituents are represented by respective Council members based on their residential addresses within the Town of Zionsville. Zionsville has five Council districts and two at-large Council seats.
Redistricting is required by law to be completed at least every 10 years, following certification of federal census data.
Pursuant to Indiana Code section 36-4-6-3, a council district map has to divide the city/town into districts that:
(1) are composed of contiguous territory,
(2) are reasonably compact,
(3) do not cross precinct boundary lines, except in specified circumstances; and
(4) contain, as nearly as possible, equal population.
A proposed new council district map is considered by the Town Council with public comment received on the topic. Following the public comment period, the Town Council can vote to adopt a new map for the districts, which would be effective for 2023 primary and general elections. The new districts have to be adopted before November 2022.
