Redistricting options to be presented at Nov. 23 meeting

JACKSON, Wyo. — The Teton County Clerk’s Office will hold a meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 23 at 5 p.m. to present two map options for redistricting Teton County, following the results of the 2020 U.S Census.

Teton County Clerk Maureen Murphy and Wyoming Representatives Mike Yin and Jim Roscoe, who sit on the Wyoming Legislative Joint Corporations, Elections, and Political Subdivisions Committee, will present and discuss two map options that will go to the Joint Corporations, Elections, and Political Subdivisions Committee of the whole for review and analysis.

The Joint Committee will meet prior the Wyoming 2022 Budget Session, which convenes on Monday, Feb. 14, 2022, to finalize their recommendations to the legislature.

The Joint Corporations, Elections, and Political Subdivisions Committee grouped Wyoming’s 23 counties into 10 regions. Teton County is grouped with Lincoln, Sublette, and Uinta counties, representing Region 10.

Redistricting is the process by which new congressional and state legislative district boundaries are drawn based on the results of the U.S. Census, which is conducted every 10 years. According to the 2020 U.S. Census, Wyoming’s population grew from 563,626 in 2010 to 576,851. Teton County’s population increased by 9.6% from 21,294 to 23,331.
The public can review map option one and map option two in advance to Monday’s meeting.

The presentation will take place in the Teton County Commissioners Chambers located in the Teton County Administration Building at 200 South Willow Street in Jackson.

The meeting will also be streamed live via Zoom using the passcode 307 and the following link.
