County Council Reapportionment Commission
The Reapportionment Commission is constituted in accordance with requirements of the St. Louis County Charter. The Commission’s sole charge is to draw new boundaries for St. Louis County Council districts based upon the results of the 2010 United States Census. The fourteen-member Commission is composed of registered voters, one Democrat and one Republican, from each of the County’s seven Council districts.
The testimony and input of St. Louis County residents is critical to creating a redistricting plan that provides fair and effective representation for all citizens of the County. Learn how to get involved.

St. Louis County Charter, Article II, Section 2.035
"Within thirty days before June 1, 1981, and within thirty days before June 1 each tenth year thereafter and, in the event that a reapportionment has been invalidated by a court of competent jurisdiction, within sixty (60) days after the judgment shall have become final, the central committee of St. Louis County of each of the two parties casting the highest vote for governor at the last preceding election shall, at a meeting duly called and held, nominate by the vote of a majority of all the members of the Committee, two members of its party from each council district as nominees for reapportionment commissioners. Each nominee shall be a registered voter in the council district for which he is nominated and shall hold no other public office or employment. Each committee shall certify in writing to the county executive its list of nominees. Within thirty (30) days thereafter the county executive shall appoint a commission consisting of one person from each district from each list to divide the county into the number of council districts established by this charter. If any party committee fails to certify a list within the time herein provided, the county executive shall appoint a member of his own choice from each council district from the political party of the committee failing to make the nomination. Vacancies in the commission shall be filled by the county executive from the same political party and the same district as the previous members. The commission shall reapportion the council districts by dividing the population of the county by the number of council districts established by this charter so that the population of each district shall, as near as possible, equal that figure and so that each district shall be composed of contiguous territory as compact as may be. Not later than six months after the population of St. Louis County is reported to the president of the United States after each decennial census or six months after the appointment of the commission by the county executive, whichever is later, the commission shall file with the county clerk and with the office or officer charged with conducting elections in the county a final statement of the numbers and the boundaries of the districts together with a map of the districts. The final statement must receive the affirmative vote of a majority plus one of all the members. At the next general election held at least nine months after the statement is filed and at general elections thereafter councilmen shall be elected according to such districts until a reapportionment is made as herein provided, but no reapportionment shall shorten the term of any councilman."
