Senate - Proposed District Maps for 2022

Every 10 years, states are required to redraw their legislative districts based on the most recent federal Census data. The redistricting process requires the General Assembly to follow a very specific, very technical set of guidelines outlined in state and federal law. There are numerous criteria each district must meet, including containing a relatively similar population size and meeting guidelines concerning contiguity, compactness, communities of interest, and observing natural or political boundaries wherever possible, all while maintaining majority-minority districts.
