The city has released color-coded map to remind voters about who, exactly, they will be voting for during this May’s election.

The interactive version of the map can be found here.

At first glance the map is a little intimidating. The key thing here is to ignore the gray lines and red numbers, in the case of the city council election they don’t matter. To turn those off, go to the blue bar at the top of the map, find the “layers” menu and unclick “voters precincts.”

Precincts won’t matter this year, because the city has hired the county to implement a county-wide election system. Under this system voters will be able to vote for their home-district race from any location in the county that is open on Election Day.

The color-coded district key should appear on the left side of the page when you click the link, but here’s the list just in case:

District 1 – Orange

District 2 – Blue

District 3 – Pink

District 4 – Yellow

District 5 – Red

District 6 – Green
