Tippecanoe County Commission approves new voting districts, precincts

New voting districts are in place for the Tippecanoe County commission and council.

Commissioners signed off on the new maps drawn with advice from the Area Plan Commission and election board staff. District lines were redrawn based on the latest census information.

The county’s population increased 16% over the last decade. Districts had to be reworked so each has roughly the same number of residents.

The updating includes new precinct boundaries. Some were split because the number of active voters was greater than 12-hundred.

Precincts also were renumbered so numbering would flow from left to right and top to bottom in each township with the exception of a few precincts without voters.
