Apportionment Commission

According to State Law, the Kalamazoo County Apportionment Commission is responsible for establishing the number of seats and boundaries of the Kalamazoo County Board of Commissioner districts within the County. This task has to be completed within 60 days of the board being provided the 2020 census data. The Commissioner districts must be drawn so that equal population is distributed throughout the county.

Once the plan is approved, it will be in effect for 10 years.
