Redistricting in Horry County/South Carolina
Redistricting is the process of redrawing the lines of districts from which public officials are elected. It typically takes place after each census to accommodate population changes over the previous decade. Redistricting affects all jurisdictions that have single-member elections, whether for members of Congress, state legislatures, county councils, city councils, school boards, etc., and seeks to equalize population among districts. Reapportionment is the reallocation of congressional seats in the U.S. House of Representatives based on the total state population. Like redistricting, it is performed after releasing the state population totals based on the latest decennial census, the 2020 Census.
Horry County Schools follows the same voting districts as Horry County Government. The Horry County Ad Hoc Redistricting Committee has laid out the new draft boundaries for Horry County Council and the Horry County Board of Education voting districts.
