Population shifts alter district maps and who represents you
Miami-Dade is still the most populous county in Florida, but according to the results of the 2020 Census, its population isn’t growing as fast as most of its neighbors. And the places where the population is increasing the most are miles away from Miami’s urban core or densely developed coastline.
Those factors will impact redistricting in the coming months. That means there’s a decent chance someone else will be representing you in the U.S. House of Representatives, Florida Legislature, Miami-Dade County Commission, school board, and maybe even your municipal council or commission.
