The 35 legislative districts in the state will be set again by the end of the year. State legislators serving on the Legislative Redistricting Committee met last week, but some of their work has been delayed until they receive official 2020 U.S. Census numbers. The data has been delayed because of COVID-19.
State Senator Casey Crabtree of Madison, who serves on the Legislative Redistricting Committee, said that they have been able to come up with an estimate of the size of each district.
Crabtree said that they anticipate changes in some areas of the state.
Crabtree said that there will be field hearings this fall across the state for residents to express any concerns they have with what the committee proposes. He said that the redistricting process is done every ten years and he feels that going forward it will be a little different, but with the same goals in mind.
Crabtree encourages anyone with any questions or concerns about the redistricting process to contact him or any member of the committee. He said questions and concerns can also be sent to the group by e-mail – [email protected]
