City Council Approved Redistricting Plans Establishing New Precincts and Polling Places

At their March 22, 2022 business meeting, the New Brighton City Council passed a resolution establishing new precinct boundaries and polling places. 

Please contact us if you need a paper copy of any of the materials or forms on this page. Standard 8 1/2" x 11" and 11" x 17" copies of redistricting-related documents for personal use and election forms will be released free of charge. The City's fee schedule will be followed for requests for engineering size maps.


Next Steps in the Process

Over the next couple of months, City staff will be working with Ramsey County Elections and the MN Secretary of State's office to get these changes entered into the Statewide Voter Registration System. We will also start working to communicate these changes to residents in our city. Please help us spread the word. 

Let your friends and neighbors know precinct and polling place changes were made. Consider sharing upcoming City's social media posts about our new precincts and polling places on your personal social media page. As Election Day approaches, please remind your friends and neighbors to visit the MN Secretary of State's poll finder to confirm their new polling place. (Note: This tool will not include new precinct and polling place information until AFTER May 30, 2022.) 

Encourage friends and neighbors who are qualified to vote to register to vote. Eligibility information and an on-line registration portal can be found here.  

Let your friends and neighbors know that there are absentee and early voting options available to cast their ballot.

If you are interested in helping with voting activities at our polls, in learning more about the election process, and want to partner with us to ensure our elections are run with accuracy and integrity in accordance with state laws, please consider applying to serve as an Election Judge. Applications and information will be available by mid-April.

Contact City Clerk Terri Spangrud with any questions you have at (651) 638-2045.


About the redistricting process in the City of New Brighton

The purpose of the decennial U.S. Census is to ensure that the representation of each state is apportioned fairly in the U.S. House of Representatives. This apportionment process does not affect representation in the U.S. Senate since every state receives 2 seats regardless of population. Once this reapportionment work is completed, each state uses the census population counts to redistrict its congressional and legislative districts.

The five-judge Special Redistricting Panel appointed by the Minnesota Supreme Court released Minnesota’s redistricting plan in mid-February. Links to these plans are below.

 As there is a new Senate District boundary line in New Brighton and the boundary lines for the MN House Districts in New Brighton moved north, the City of New Brighton needs to change the boundary lines of our election precincts.

Election staff presented an update to the City Council on the City's redistricting work during the Council's March 8, 2022 6:30pm business meeting.
