New Hope to Adjust Precinct Boundaries

New Hope to Adjust Precinct Boundaries
Posted on 03/23/2022

Slight changes are coming to New Hope’s precinct boundaries following state redistricting and approval by the New Hope City Council at its March 14 meeting.

The Minnesota Judicial Branch Special Redistricting Panel released its redistricting plan for congressional and legislative boundaries based on the 2020 census in mid-February. State redistricting is the process of redrawing the boundaries of election districts to ensure that the people of each district are equally represented. Redistricting is typically completed every 10 years after completing the decennial Census and Congressional reapportionment. Cities must establish precinct boundaries after state redistricting and at least 19 weeks before the state primary election. The 2022 Primary Election is Tuesday, Aug. 9.

New Hope’s last precinct boundary modification came in 2012, in the southern part of the city to accommodate legislative district 45B. New Hope does not have a congressional or state legislative boundary going through the city with the current redistricting plan, with New Hope entirely in legislative district 43/43A.

The change moves the boundary between Precincts 1 and 2 on the southern part of the city to Boone Avenue, more evenly distributing voters between the two precincts, and providing a well-known street as the boundary. The adjustment moves 480 voters from Precinct 2 to Precinct 1. New Hope has a total of eight precincts in the city.

As election dates approach, Hennepin County will mail a postcard to all registered voters within the county notifying them of their polling place. Voters who are not currently registered and would like to register or those who would like to check their voter registration status may do so at mnvotes.org. New Hope-specific election information is available at newhopemn.gov/vote.
