New City Council Maps are Here
The new City Council district map is here. Just like our congressional districts, the City Council will also be redistricted. The NYC Redistricting Commission spent nearly eight months drawing the new maps. New Yorkers also submitted their opinions on the process via testimony submissions, meetings and hearings. These new City Council districts will be in place for the next 10 years and will be used for the first time in the City Council June primary of 2023.

Why is my City Council district changing?

Remember the census? Every 10 years, it gives us a better understanding of our population, which can change drastically over the decade. That is why City Council, assembly and congressional districts are redrawn. This ensures districts reflect the population and demographic changes that happened over 10 years. 

Where can I find my new district?

Your district will be staying the same until the next City Council election happening next year in June 2023. See how your borough has changed by looking at the new map. You can find your current district here.

The 2023 New York City City Council election will be held on Nov. 7, 2023, and the primary on June 27, 2023. Stay tuned for our coverage on City Council elections.
