Precinct Realignment

The US Constitution calls for a census to be taken every ten years.  This year's census was delayed due to COVID-19 which also delayed the state's realignment.  On Friday, November 5, 2021, the Commissioner's Court voted to Order Clay County's Precinct Realignment as required by law.  They also approved the criteria that will be used.

Adopted Realignment

Clay County utilizes the services of Allison, Bass, and Magee, an Austin Attorney group that specializes in county government.  They have provided recommendations to the county on redrawing precinct lines that will meet Federal and State requirements of the Voting Rights Act and the Texas Election Code. 

Each color represents the proposed precinct lines.
