Idaho to Begin Redistricting Process
Idaho is slated to start its redistricting process this September.
Based on the most recent Census, Idaho gained an additional congressional district, bringing their total up to two.
Legislators will be tasked with dividing the state into two congressional districts and redrawing the state’s 35 legislative districts.
Legislative and party leaders appoint six members, three Republicans and three Democrats, to the Citizen Committee for Reapportionment to approve the newly drawn maps.
It takes at least four votes to approve a map.
Once the Citizen Committee for Reapportionment holds its first meeting, it has 90 days to adopt the newly drawn maps.
