The Town of Natick is holding a public meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 20 to review the proposed updated voting precinct maps based on the 2020 U.S. Census. Natick’s population rose from 33,006 to 37,006 between 2010 and 2020, according to Census data.
Following the release of Census data every 10 years the town is required to rejigger voting precincts if any existing ones are plus or minus 5% from the average precinct population. This keeps things balanced for Town Meeting representation and determines where you vote.
The public meeting is scheduled for Oct. 20 from 4 to 6pm in the Select Board meeting room, 2nd floor of Natick Town Hall. The Board will then consider proposed new precincts at its Oct. 27 meeting in order to meet an Oct. 31 deadline for submitting updated precincts.
You can study up on the topic using these resources collected by the town.
The town needs to zip through the process this year because of pandemic-related delays with the release of Census data.
