Every ten years after the U.S. Census is complete, governments across the country update their election districts to match the new population data. In Anchorage, the process is called Reapportionment. Learn from Reapportionment Committee Chair Christopher Constant how the process works, how you can get involved, how the new 12th Assembly seat fits in, and how the process will shape future elections. He will also share more information on the Reapportionment Town Halls, which are currently scheduled for January 12 and 13, 2022.
