Redistricting

Every 10 years, upon completion of the federal census, the federal, state and local levels of government go through a process of redistricting. The redistricting process is completed to help balance resident populations within district lines, so as to ensure equal representation.

The City of Chaska redistricting process, utilized the following objectives:
  • Do not make drastic changes that significantly impact residents in a negative way
  • Go from 6 precincts to 4 precincts (Attempt to have only 1 polling site per ward)
  • Have population sizes within each of the wards be as equal as possible
  • Keep a 4 ward system within the City of Chaska
  • Keep ward borders as logical as possible, based on major landmarks; roads, rivers, etc.
