City Council votes to create new ward lines

Some Jackson residents are seeing their ward number and where they vote in-person change. At their Tuesday, March 22 meeting, the Jackson City Council voted to approve a new ward and precinct map for the City’s six wards. 

These borders are redrawn every 10 years to reflect population changes determined by the 2020 U.S. Census and to comply with new Jackson County Commission district lines. The City’s Election Commission reviewed this information and used it to draw two proposed maps. The maps were presented to the City Council for review at their March 8 meeting. Final approval was given to one of the maps at the March 22 meeting. 

The map selected by the council changes boundaries for every ward but Ward 1. Depending on where residents live in the City of Jackson, where they vote in-person and what ward they reside in could change. The changes take effect starting with the Aug. 2 primary election. A closer look at the new ward and previous ward maps is available on this page and in the Election Division section of the City website. 

The City Clerk will mail out new voter registration cards to impacted residents, informing them of their new ward and voting location. The new ward lines do not impact the elected terms of City Councilmembers, who will serve out the remainder of their terms in the ward they were elected to represent. The next City Council election is in 2023 for Wards  2, 4 and 6. This does not change how the Mayor is elected, because that office is voted on by the entire City.
