Clark County

130px-Map of Indiana highlighting Adams County.svgClark County's population deviation is only 6%, but three of the districts are not compact, with one district nearly bisecting another.

 

 

County Redistricting Overview

State law and state and federal court decisions require that local government districts be compact, contiguous, not cross precinct boundaries, and be as nearly equal in population as possible (usually with population deviation of less than 10%). To be in compliance, answers to each of the questions below should be "Yes".

Note: Other requirements regarding vote dilution and minority representation are not examined in this report.

Were the districts based on the 2000 census in compliance with state law? Unknown
 
Did the county redistrict after the 2010 census? Yes
 
Is the population deviation of the current districts less than 10%? Yes.  It is 6%
 
Are the current districts compact and contiguous? No.  District 3 nearly bisects District 2.  Districts 1, 2 and 3 are a crazy patchwork due to the cities of Sellersburg and Clarksville.
 
Is every precinct wholly contained within a single district? Yes

2010 Census Data

In 2012, we were able to determine exact populations for each county council district by identifying which precincts (as drawn in 2011 by each county) were in which county council district. We were able to calculate precinct populations using the 2010 census as long as precincts contained whole census blocks, which they are supposed to do.
