About Council Districts

During the 2020 legislative session, the State passed a bill (HB413) requiring cities with populations over 100,000 people to create districts for City Council elections.

In 2021, Boise City Council seats 1, 3 and 5 were up for election using temporary geographic districts since the 2020 census data was unavailable. Council members were elected for two-year terms instead of the standard four.

In 2023 all six council districts will be up for election using the map created by the Boise Districting Commission utilizing the 2020 census data. In 2023, odd-numbered districts will run for four-year terms and even-numbered districts will run for two-year terms so that council elects are staggered.

Help Us Draw the Map

The Boise Districting Commission is asking for help from residents to draw districting lines that structure districts to reflect the representation needs of our city.

Plans submitted by community members will be reviewed by the Boise Districting Commission and will help guide the commission as they create the final map of council districts.
