Nevada Special Session Ends with Approval of Controversial Maps
The Nevada special session ended November 16 with Gov. Steve Sisolak signing off on updated redistricting maps.
The Democratic-controlled Legislature passed the maps with zero support from the Republican minority and expect lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of the maps.
The new maps increase Democratic footholds in the state’s swing districts, in part by redistributing roughly one out of every seven Latino residents from the first district to the third and fourth districts.
With the looming lawsuits on the horizon, Democrats have been mostly silent on their reasoning for the new boundaries.
