People have 10 days left to submit their own draft political boundary maps for the Municipality of Anchorage. The Anchorage Assembly has provided its own draft maps for the new Assembly boundaries in Anchorage, a process that takes place after state redistricting is completed.
The Assembly’s redistricting committee is led by Assemblyman Chris Constant. The schedule for the deliberation and adoption of the new maps is:
Jan 20: Deadline for submission of third-party maps (5 pm)
Jan 26: Town Hall-Virtual
Jan 27: Town Hall-Loussac Library at 36th and Denali
Jan 28: Committee Meeting: review Town Hall feedback
Feb 15: Assembly Meeting: introduce proposed plan
Feb 24: Assembly Meeting: 1st public hearing
Feb 25: Assembly Work session
Mar 1: Assembly Meeting: 2nd public hearing, deliberation, plan adoption
The first round of draft maps for the Anchorage reapportionment can be found at www.ReapportionANC.org.
This Reapportionment will include a new 12th Assembly seat that was approved by Anchorage voters in 2020.
Due to the late completion of the U.S. Census, and therefore the State redistricting plan, the Anchorage reapportionment will not be completed in time for the upcoming election, so the final adopted plan will go into effect for elections occurring after April 2022.
