Everything You Need for Redistricting

We are experienced GIS practitioners, demographers, census data experts, software developers, and public engagement professionals ready to support your redistricting process, no matter how simple or complex it may be.
Work with FLO, and you’ll be using the best possible data and analytical methods to ensure your redistricting initiative is transparent, data-driven, and complies with federal, state, and local regulations.

What is Redistricting?

Every decade, as required by law, government entities such as states, cities, counties, and special districts redraw their district maps to help ensure fair representation. In 2021, district boundaries will be redrawn from coast to coast, based on data collected during the 2020 Census.

What Do You Get When You Work With FLO?

Experienced Analysts

FLO’s experienced GIS and data analysts will efficiently guide you through the iterative process of modeling and updating boundaries. They will ensure boundaries are checked for compactness and allowable population deviation while accounting for any unique criteria you need to consider.

Census Data Specialists

Gathering and deciphering census data can be an enormous effort. Our in-house demography team is ready to contribute their deep expertise in census data analysis and boundary scenario modeling.

Proven Public Engagement Strategies

Public outreach is often required by law for redistricting, and requirements vary from entity to entity. Whether you need to simply make your redistricting maps available for public comment or you need to plan, host, and facilitate a series of public meetings, our collaborative and transparent redistricting process will engage your stakeholders and earn their trust.

Redistricting Software

The District Scenario Modeler is an interactive web-based mapping tool that we designed to provide your community with an easy way to participate in the districting or redistricting process. The tool allows users to draw their own boundaries and instantly view demographic information to see if they are population-balanced and support fair representation. The tool includes several features that guide users and help them to create viable district maps.

The Redistricting Process

We know redistricting can get complicated, so we created a process that can be scaled up or down depending on your needs. This ensures you get the most efficient and transparent redistricting process possible to achieve compliance with all regulations.

1. You send us your data (or we’ll assemble it for you).

2. We create redistricting scenario maps based on redistricting regulations and your specific criteria.

3. We work together to refine the scenario maps until we identify the best options for your community.

4. We help you engage the public, with anything from extensive engagement initiatives to simply providing the redistricting scenario maps for the public to review.

5. We finalize your redistricting maps, package up the data, and provide you with the final plan in print or digital format.

Who Needs Redistricting?

Local governments and special districts that elect members to represent different geographic areas of the government or the district are required to redistrict after the decennial Census.
