[ARCHIVED] Six of seven election districts’ boundaries change; about 2,000 voters affected

About 2,000 Castle Rock voters have new election districts as a result of a recent redistricting process by the Town Election Commission.

The commission reevaluates the Town’s election districts every three years. Per Town charter, the group aims to ensure the district with the lowest number of residents has at least 85 percent as many residents as the district with the highest number of residents.

Because some areas of Town had grown more than others since the last redistricting, some adjustments to the election districts were necessary this year:

  • Registered voters within a portion of Filing 16, located in the southwest corner of The Meadows, were moved from District 3 to District 1. The 182 voters impacted by this change now will vote for a Council representative in April; they would not have done so as members of District 3.
  • Registered voters within sections of The Woodlands and Escavera and in Castle Oaks and Liberty Village were moved from District 2 to District 5. These 1,045 voters will not vote for a Council representative in April as they would have as part of District 2.
  • Registered voters within portions of the Red Hawk subdivision were moved from District 3 to District 4. These 694 voters now will vote for a Council representative in April.
  • Registered voters within certain apartment complexes along South Gilbert Street and Oman Road were moved from District 5 to District 6. These 196 voters now will vote
    for a Council representative in April.

Castle Rock had 29,390 registered voters as of Jan. 4, meaning the changes will impact 7.2 percent – or 2,117 – of the Town’s voters. District 7 is the only district unaffected.

District 3 now has the fewest voters, with 4,085. District 4 has the most, 4,323, making the lowest-to-highest ratio 93.9 percent.

At the time of the last redistricting in 2007, the Town had 23,759 registered voters. If redistricting hadn’t occurred, District 5 – which had the least voters – would have had only 64.5 percent the amount of registered voters as the district with the most voters, District 2.

The new district map is available at CRgov.com/votemap. Voters also may verify their districts, via the Colorado Secretary of State Registered Voter Search, http://tinyurl.com/votecheck.
