Written feedback can be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via mail to Yuma County Board of County Commissioners, Attn: Redistricting, 310 Ash Street, Suite A, Wray, CO 80758.
As a protocol to ensure compliance with HB21-1047 addressing the establishment of voting districts by county governments, the Yuma County Commissioners have adopted this plan to govern the process of creation, review, and adoption of new districts. Yuma County does not qualify for required creation of a redistricting commission under the requirements in CRS 30-10-306.1 and has assigned responsibility for redistricting compliance to the Yuma County Administrator’s Office.
No less than three plans shall be available for public inspection via the County website and in person at the Yuma County Commissioners’ Office by April 1, 2023. The three plans shall be created by Yuma County GIS staff based on 2020 census data and will be constructed to ensure as equal a division of population as possible, to minimize the division of existing communities and population centers, and to maximize political competition for elected seats.
Public inspection and comment will be taken via the website, via postal mail, via email, and in person at public hearings. Advertising of request for public comment as well as for each public comment hearing will be listed both on the website and in both local newspapers.
Three public comment hearings will be held virtually in April and May to accept comment on the three plans. Following the receipt and processing of comment, the final public hearing on the selected redistricting plan will be held virtually in May with intended adoption of the new districts at the final regular meeting of the Board of County Commissioners in May.
Following adoption of the plan, it will be filed with the Secretary of State and Division of Local Affairs.
