Updated District Lines - Learn More

Every ten years following completion of the census, the U.S. Constitution requires all voting districts be reevaluated to ensure equal representation. As law establishes that representatives are to be based on population, district lines are re-drawn as needed based upon changes in population. In Forsyth County, census data has resulted in changes to all voting districts: congressional, state senate, state house, county commission and county school board. 

The current district lines remain in effect through December 31, 2022.  The recently-approved district lines will go into effect January 1, 2023. The district representing a voter today may be different from the district that will represent the voter starting on January 1, 2023. Also, the district representing a voter today may be different from the district appearing on a voter’s ballot during the 2022 election cycle.

Things to Know

  • The current district lines remain in effect through December 31, 2022.
