Although the 2020 census revealed some population changes in Sibley County, they were not great enough to require redistricting of the county’s five Commissioner Districts. State law requires redistricting if the population in any district varies more than 10 percent from the average of all districts in a county. The total population went from 15,118 a decade ago, to 14,836 in 2020; however district populations stayed within 10 percent of the five districts’ average of 2,967.
