This afternoon the Peoria County Board approved the new map of its 18 districts, reflecting the changes in population from 2020 census data. Printable and interactive maps are posted online at www.peoriacounty.org/redistricting.
“On behalf of the Peoria County Board I would like to thank former board members G. Allen Mayer and City Treasurer Stephen Morris for undertaking this task,” said Peoria County Board Chairman Andrew A. Rand. “While one represented Democrats and the other Republicans, they both worked collaboratively and professionally to bring us what I believe is a fair and representative 18-district map of Peoria County.”
Districts will officially change with the next general election in November 2022. Those running for County Board in the June 2022 primary will be running to represent these new districts.
The 2020 population of Peoria County is 181,830. Each of the 18 districts encompasses roughly 10,000 people. The approved map was built using census block data and took into account population shifts, demographics, and jurisdictional boundaries of local entities (such as cities and townships).
The interactive map allows residents to view maps in more detail, population changes, old and new district boundaries, and current board member residences.
