Redistricting is done every 10 years based on the latest census data. Denton County's population increased by nearly 37% between 2010 and 2020 from 662,614 to 906,422.
State law requires no more than a 10% difference in population among the county precincts. The county’s targeted population for each of the four commissioner precincts is 226,606 people, according to county documents. Precincts 1 and 2 exceeded the targeted population with 226,928 people and 238,198 people, respectively. Precincts 3 and 4 came in below the county target with 223,614 people and 217,682 people, respectively.
“The remaining part of the redistricting will be handled on Nov. 30, and that is the individual voter precincts,” County Judge Andy Eads said.
Eads also said the elections office has committed to presenting the redistricted voter precincts to the Commissioners Court so that they can be posted online for voters to see.
