Final City Council Districts Map Released For Comment And Review

October 9, 2020

Everett Government

Here are the final 5 districts as proposed. There are also 2 council positions at large.

On Wednesday the Everett City Council received a briefing on the status of the work done so far by the 9 members of Everett’s Districting Commission. The Commission has released their final draft of how the five council districts will be split out across Everett, Washington.

Beginning in 2021 there will be elections in each of the five districts for one councilmember who must live within that district’s boundaries in order to run for office. There are two additional council seats that are “at-large” which means people running for those seats can live anywhere within the Everett city limits.

On October 19th at 5 PM the Districting Commission will hold its final meeting and adopt a final version of the districting map which will be sent to the City Council for acceptance. The City Council cannot change the work of the Districting Commission and has to accept the results as submitted.

After the results of the 2020 Census are certified there will be another Districting Commission empaneled in 2022 to make any adjustments to the map as needed per population change within Everett. You can learn more about how the Districting Commission came up with their decisions by going through their webpage here. You can also submit comments and input to the commission through this link before the 19th of October.
