King County Districting Committee

Public Testimony

The process has concluded and testimony is now closed.

Districting Criteria

By law, the new district boundaries must be compact, contiguous, and composed of economic and geographic units. To the extent feasible, the districts must correspond with the boundaries of existing municipalities, election precincts, census tracts, recognized natural boundaries, and preserve communities of related and mutual interest. Population data may not be used for purposes of favoring or disfavoring any racial group or political party. Read the exact language of the law in the Revised Code of Washington and the King County Charter.
