Wood County Redistricting

Decennial Redistricting

Under Wisconsin Stat. § 59.10, counties are required to redraw supervisory districts following completion of the federal ten –year or "decennial" census. This process is commonly referred to as "decennial redistricting," with the purpose of realigning supervisory districts to shifts in population that have occurred over the past ten years. Decennial redistricting also provides counties with the opportunity to increase or decrease the number of supervisory districts.

On August 17, 2021 the Wood County Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution that sets the number of supervisory districts at 19 for the redistricting process. The current number of supervisory districts is 19.

Wood County Census and Redistricting Committee

The Wood County Census and Redistricting Committee is responsible for facilitating the process of creating a supervisory district plan to present to the Wood County Board of Supervisors for consideration. The Committee is comprised of 5 County Board Supervisors, assisted by County staff to provide technical support.
