LUBBOCK, Texas– The City of Lubbock City Council plans to consider an ordinance for the approval of redistricting single-member city council districts in the upcoming meeting Tuesday, according to the city’s online agenda.

This ordinance plans to establish new single-member district boundary lines for council elections based on the 2020 Census data.

According to Census data, districts are “sufficiently out of population balance to require redistricting” to ensure that the city continues to comply with the “one-person, one-vote” as stated in the US Constitution.

The overall standard deviation has increased by 7.48%, according to the agenda.
