Why do we redraw the district lines?
Communities and populations in Washington change over time. Every 10 years, after the federal government publishes updated census information, Washington redraws the boundaries of its congressional and state legislative electoral districts to ensure that each district represents an equal number of residents.
The Voting Commissioners of the Washington State Redistricting Commission will release draft Legislative District maps on Tuesday, September 21 at 12:00pm and draft Congressional District maps on Tuesday, September 28. (Review article and information on Redistricting)
