Every ten years, Hidalgo County Commissioners’ Court is tasked with the
responsibility of redistributing the population equally among the four
precincts. The 2010 Census figures indicated an imbalanced population
distribution due to substantial population growth in some parts of the
County, while other areas experienced a decrease in population. As a
result, County Commissioner precinct boundaries must be redrawn to
evenly distribute the population; the redistricting will also affect
justice of the peace and constable jurisdictions.
The attorneys hired by the County for redistricting services have drawn
proposed maps, which can be viewed on the County’s website here:
Hidalgo County Commissioners’ Court has held three public hearings to give the public the opportunity to comment on proposed County Commissioner precinct maps. As a result of the input submitted at these hearings, the consultants along with the members of Commissioners' Court are modifying variations of the proposed maps.
