Map Submission Instructions

The public are invited to submit their own redistricting maps for consideration by the Reapportionment Committee. To have your map considered, please email a GIS shapefile of your proposed district boundaries to wwmas@anchorageak.gov. In your email, please also include a summary of key points that describe your choices and any other information you feel would be helpful. Once received, your dataset will be evaluated to ensure it meets the following requirements:

  1. Must contain six districts.
  2. Districts must be compact, contiguous and a relatively integrated socioeconomic area (Anchorage Charter 4.01).
  3. The total deviation in actual population to target population must be less than 10% (federal law). The target population per district is 48,541.
  4. A single district with an over 5% deviation must have a compelling reason.
  5. The proposed boundaries cannot be racially discriminatory (federal law).
  6. The principle of "one person, one vote" must be maintained.

There are a variety of free, user-friendly online tools available to help you create and analyze your own redistricting plan, even if you have never made a map before! Here are three that we are aware of:  


Each of these tools helps take the guesswork out of meeting the reapportionment requirements by calculating population deviations for you as you map. They all use the latest 2020 census data and have helpful online training and resources available to guide you.
