Redistricting is a process of redrawing legislative districts that takes place every 10 years following the United States Census. While the final map was decided by vote of the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners, Hillsborough County welcomed resident input throughout the process.
The Board of County Commissioners voted to select Map E (revised) at the BOCC Redistricting Public Hearing on November 16, 2021. This map will be transmitted to the Florida Secretary of State and will be effective for elections in 2022.
