Why does redistricting happen?

After each decennial census, districts must be reapportioned for fair and balanced representation. 


Federal House Districts, State Senate and House Districts are drawn by Legislative Services Agency and approved by the state congressional body.


Precinct boundaries can have no more than 3,500 people when precincts are created.
