Every 10 years, the federal census spurs the redistricting of a city's political wards. Redistricting involves redrawing boundaries of election districts with the goal in mind to create equal population, reestablishing election precincts, and designating polling places.

On March 7, 2022, the Elk River City Council adopted new ward and precinct boundaries. Please be aware, your ward and/or polling precinct may have changed from the last time you went to the polls. Learn more about Elk River's 2022 redistricting here.
