2022 Redistricting

2022 was a Redistricting and Reprecincting Year. Changes were made that affected you as a Voter.

Every 10 years, County and State governments must redistrict the elected offices that represent geographically distinct regions of the County or State. The State of Utah redistricted the State Board of Education, State House of Representatives, State Senate, and Federal House of Representative districts late in 2021. The results of these State changes are the following:

Federal & State Redistricting

State Board of Education:

State House of Representatives:

State Senate:

  • Senate Seat 24: Round Valley Area, Wallsburg Town, Provo Canyon Area - Online State of Utah Map
  • Senate Seat 26: Charleston Town, Daniel Town, Center Creek South Area, Timberlakes Area - Online State of Utah Map

Federal House of Representatives:

Local County Redistricting

Upon the conclusion of State level redistricting, Wasatch County commenced the redistricting of the County Council and Wasatch County School District School Board Districts. Both the Council and School Board share the same geographic districts. 

Wasatch County Council and Wasatch County School District Representation Districts: (County Council Seats A & B are At-Large seats)

After County redistricting was completed, the County began the reprecincting process to adjust all voting precincts in the County. All voting precincts in the County have been adjusted to serve the community for the next 10 years. Also, all precincts have received new precinct numbers to tie the precinct to its Council/School Board district.
