The Arkansas GIS Office provides technical support and plays an advisory role in the redistricting process for multiple levels of government.
The redistricting process requires sophisticated geographic information system (GIS) software and the Census PL94-171 Block file. No matter the level of redistricting, all levels use the same source data from the Census.
Following the completion on all levels of redistricting the new election boundaries are aggregated on a statewide basis and published via the gis.arkansas.gov platform.
Redistricted election boundaries include:
- State House and Senate
- County Justice of Peace
- City Wards
- School Districts
