Susquehanna Reapportionment

Shortly after the November 8, 2022 General Election, the Dauphin County Bureau of Registration and Elections will begin the process of changing the nine election districts boundaries of Susquehanna Township to mirror the recently enacted ward lines approved by the Susquehanna Township Board of Commissioners.

Every 10 years, in compliance with the state’s municipal laws, Susquehanna Township, which elects is township commissioners by wards, is required to reapportion ward lines to account for changes in population based in the most recent U.S. Census.  Once the township approves a reapportionment map, the election code requires the county election office to align election districts to mirror the ward lines so that the two sets of boundaries match.

Once this process has been completed, the new boundaries – both the ward and election districts - will take effect on January 1, 2023.

Using the links on the left, you can view the township-wide maps of the current and proposed lines, as well as individual maps of the proposed election district lines, that mirror the new ward lines.  Additionally, there are maps to highlight the areas of each ward that will move to another ward.  After January 1, 2023, those voters assigned to a new election district and ward will be notified by mail that this change has taken effect and where their new polling place is located.
