The 2021 King County Districting Committee – which is responsible for redrawing King County Council Districts using 2020 Census data – will be holding an online public hearing this Tuesday, Nov. 30, 2021, starting at 2 p.m. to review and seek community input on a final draft map.

By law, district boundaries must be realigned every 10 years to reflect changes in population distribution. This means that your current King County Council District and Councilmember may change.
