Redistricting

The City of Champlin has completed redistricting, a process that happens once every ten years.  As the population changes, it is important to re-draw ward and precinct boundary lines to balance them by population. Redistricting is also the process of re-drawing boundaries of election districts, from local precincts to U.S. Congressional districts.A view of the new 2022 Ward Map of Champlin With Poll Locations after redistricting. Opens in new window to see a larger view.

As a result of the state's redistricting process, Champlin will now be in State House Districts 34A and 34B. This results in Ward 4 being split into two precincts, to allow for two legislative districts.  Ward 4 residents living on the west side of Douglas will be in Precinct 1 and Ward 4 residents living on the east side of Douglas will be in Precinct 2. 

Please note, the Ward 4 voting location will remain at Jackson Middle School; residents living on the west side of Douglas will vote in Precinct 1 and residents living on the east side of Douglas will vote in Precinct 2.

Where you vote matters and is determined by where you live. In July, registered voters will receive a white and blue postcard from Hennepin County if your polling location has changed.  Please note, if you choose to vote early and in person, you will visit City Hall.  In preparation for Election Day 2022, please take time to review "5 Steps to Voting" and check Poll Finder.
