It’s A New City Council District Map for Boston

On Friday, Mayor Michelle Wu signed the new City Council district map passed by the Council on Wednesday. You can see the map here: districtr.org/plan/185591

Several precincts in Ward 4 changed district from the previously passed map: 

  • 4-5 to District 7 (from District 2) 
  • 4-6 to District 8 (from District 2) 
  • 4-7 to District 7 (from District 8) 

The reprecincting that the City did following legislative redistricting led to significant changes in Ward 4 boundaries, which affected voters’ Council districts as much as actual redistricting. The following maps show the three largest areas of change: 

  • Voters who would have been in District 2 in 2021 but will now vote in District 7 (If your precinct used to be 4-1 or 4-3, but you were reprecincted into 4-4)
  • Voters who would have been in District 2 in 2021 but will now vote in District 8 (If your precinct used to be 4-2, but you were reprecincted into 4-6) 
  • Voters who would have been in District 8 in 2021 but will now vote in District 7 (If your precinct is currently 4-7 or if used to be for 4-7 but became 4-8 after reprecincting)
