Clinton County

130px-Map of Indiana highlighting Adams County.svgClinton County's council districts have a population deviation of only 4%. Though two of the districts have jagged boundaries because they follow city boundaries, they are otherwise compact. Thus Clinton is in compliance.

 

 

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?

Probably not, as the 2000 and 2010 maps appear to be identical.

 
Is the population deviation of the current districts less than 10%? Yes.  It is 4%.
 
Are the current districts compact and contiguous?  

Districts 1 and 2 divide all of Frankfort, IN.  They follow the city's rather spiky boundaries exactly.  The long westward neck that reaches out from District 2 is the connection to the Frankfort municipal airport and appears to have little population.

 
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.

District 1 8,326 | District 2 8,096 | District 3 8,447 | District 4 8,355

Population deviation is calculated by subtracting the smallest district from the largest district and dividing by the average district population. The maximum allowable deviation for local governments is 10%.
