Albion’s Redistricting

The City of Albion Precinct Map from 2012, after the last census, when there was redistricting.

Coming soon the Albion 2022 precinct map. Both in 2012 and 2022, council members were displaced.

The goal of redistricting is to keep the population of each precinct equal. Before the new map was approved by the Albion City council at the second reading on 3-21-22, the affected council member had already submitted their resignation effective immediately. The new maps will take effect sometime in 2022.

The seat for the 6th Precinct is open now and the city council is accepting candidates.

A candidate must have lived in the city for two years, be current on taxes, and live in the 6th precinct. The new map is within the link below, as one of the items on the meeting agenda.

The 3-21-22 agenda includes the new Albion Redistricting map, and additional business discussed during the time of Albion’s redistricting:
