Redistricting of legislative boundaries occurs every ten years. The next redistricting will be in 2021 and will be based on data gathered by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2020. The Census Bureau is currently reviewing the census block boundaries that will be used in the 2020 Census and is seeking input from interested groups in Hawaii.
Census block tabulation boundaries are important not only for redistricting but also for appropriating Federal funds to local communities as well as providing data on population growth and income levels that are important for commerce and economic development.
The State of Hawaii Office of Elections and the Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism are jointly hosting a meeting in Honolulu where representatives from the U.S. Census Bureau will present an overview of the 2020 Census Redistricting Data Program and other geographic programs focusing on operations and timelines. A complete agenda can be found at this link: http://arcg.is/2ccytWH.
The meeting will be held on September 14th from 9 to 11 am at the Hawaii State Capitol, Room 325. The meeting will be recorded if you cannot attend.
