Every 10 years following the federal census, all federal, state and local election district boundaries must be redrawn or revised if a population imbalance of more than 10% exists. Since the overall population deviation for the City of Cleburne’s single-member districts was at approximately 18%, the four council districts needed to be redrawn to comply with federal and state laws.
The city council approved the proposed redistricting drawing after a thorough process of meetings, which included a public hearing. The redrawn lines will be in effect for the next council election on May 6, 2023. View more information about the redistricting process here.
