PUEBLO – The City of Pueblo announced today that the Board of Elections has started the redistricting process for the establishment of boundaries for the City’s four council districts. Redistricting is required by the City Charter every four years. The goal of the Board of Elections is to have each district comprised of approximately the same number of constituents.
The Board of Elections is considering a proposal for adoption which will be reviewed in detail at a public hearing scheduled for Monday, April 19, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. The meeting will take place in the Pueblo Police Department’s Community Room, 1st Floor of the Pueblo Police Department, 200 South Main Street. Masks and social distancing measures will be required.
The Board welcomes public input on the proposed district map. Acting City Clerk Belinda Kimball says, “Due to the US Census data not being available until September of this year, the Election Board may recommend that the district boundaries currently in effect be used for the City’s upcoming election scheduled for November 2, 2021.” Voters may express their concerns or support at the public meeting and their comments will be noted for the record.
