Every 10 years, the Florida constitution requires Bay County to revise its five commission districts based on the most recent census results. Although all commissioners are elected at large, state law requires that they reside in separate districts. Each district is required to be as equal in population as practicable based on the census results.
With the assistance of the Bay County Supervisor of Elections and the county's Geographical Information Systems (GIS) department, county staff developed a proposed district map meeting the constitutional requirements. Residents may click on this proposed map where they may review and search by their address. The current district map can be found here.
The commission is expected to consider the redistricting map at the Nov. 2, 2021 BOCC meeting.
