Aransas County Commissioners, at their regular meeting Monday, Nov. 8, heard a presentation regarding the initial assessment of Aransas County’s political boundaries for the purposes of redistricting.

Later in the same meeting commissioners unanimously approved Order #O-13-2021 retaining existing political boundaries for the county’s four precincts for the next 10 years.

Allison, Bass, & Magee LLP’s Frank Reilly said his firm recommends retaining the current boundaries since they meet the legal requirements, centered on one person, one vote.

He noted the county population as of the 2020 Census is 23,830, which means the perfect population for the county’s four precincts would be about 5,957.

Reilly said there can’t be more than a 10% total standard deviation between the precincts, and his firm found the deviation to be 7.9%.
