Looking to fill three “at-large” membership seats
YUMA COUNTY, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - Yuma County will soon be utilizing the 2020 Census data to redraw boundary lines for the supervisorial and justice of the peace districts.

Members must be an elector (registered voter) in Yuma County, and cannot be related to any member of the Board of Supervisors, their staff, or any member of the Yuma County Attorney’s Office, Recorder’s Office, or other member of the Redistricting Advisory Commission.
The Board of Supervisors has extended the Redistricting Advisory Commission application deadline to the end of the month.
