Following each census and redistricting, cities and counties are required to review and redraw precinct boundaries. New precincts will take effect January 15, 2022. The first scheduled election with new precincts is the June 7, 2022 primary, though special elections may occur before that date.
Final decisions on new precincts will be made by city councils and, for rural Johnson County, by the Board of Supervisors. Decisions on polling places are made by the Auditor. The Auditor's Office is working closely with cities and the Board to produce draft plans.
Precincts may not have a census population greater than 3,500, and cannot cross legislative district lines. The following precincts were over the population limit:
- Iowa City 5, 7, 11, 12 and 24
- Coralville 1
- North Liberty 3 and 6
- City of Tiffin
Our first drafts were sent to cities on November 17. North Liberty was sent three additional plans on November 19. Plan labels (A, B, C) are for identification only. Maps will be updated as additional drafts are sent to cities.
