The 2020 Federal Census results for Westfield revealed changes in Westfield’s population. To comply with Massachusetts General Laws (MGL 54§2), Westfield was required to make changes to our existing precinct borders to balance population among the precincts, thus balancing representation. This is referred to as “Reprecincting.” The result of the changes to precinct borders means some Westfield voters will be voting in a different voting precinct than where they last voted. The change is effective for the September 6, 2022 State Primary and all elections thereafter.
As a result of the Legislative Redistricting, Precincts 2A and 6B will be divided into two split representative districts.
6B and 2A-1 will be voting for the Sixth Hampden District Representative in General Court. That seat is currently held by Michael J. Finn of West Springfield. The areas inside of the black dotted lines on the New Precinct Map (2022) indicate the geographic areas that have been assigned to new precincts; the number inside the area indicates the NEW precinct number assignment.
