----------

Spartanburg County is in the process of reviewing and approving a redistricting plan, which includes redrawing the lines of council member districts to accommodate for population changes following the 2020 Census; and we encourage the public to share their input.

This process is required by the South Carolina Code of Laws Section 4-9-90. The law requires counties to redistrict within a reasonable time prior to the next general election following the federal decennial census.

The South Carolina Revenue and Fiscal Affairs Office provides an overview of redistricting.

Spartanburg County is working to finalize the redistricting process for Council Districts prior to the opening of candidate filing on Monday, March 16, 2022.

On October 18, 2021, County Council adopted a resolution establishing criteria for the development of the 2020 County Council redistricting plan.

The Spartanburg County Redistricting Plan was on the Spartanburg County Council's January 24, 2022 agenda.

We invite you to review the maps we've attached near the bottom of this article. One is of our existing council district map and the other is the proposed map. We've also provided a map that highlights the changes between the two.

Please notice these changes and, if you'd like to provide your input, please consider attending our next council meeting (February 21, 2022). The meeting will be held at 5:15 p.m. at the County Administration Building, located at 366 N. Church Street, Spartanburg, SC 29303.

Also attached below is a breakdown of the data collected for both our existing districts and proposed districts.
