In 2018, Colorado voters approved Amendment Y, which addressed redistricting for Colorado’s seats in US Congress, and Amendment Z, which addressed redistricting for Colorado’s State legislature.
Redistricting is the way in which we adjust the maps of the districts for Colorado’s seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and for Colorado’s state House and Senate. To learn more about redistricting – and how you can participate in the process – visit Colorado Independent Redistricting Commissions.
The new boundaries that are drawn will determine how Colorado’s communities are represented in those institutions for the next 10 years. Your voice and participation in the redistricting process can help ensure that the redistricting maps developed for your jurisdiction benefit – and do not harm – your community. Participating in redistricting will lend your community a voice in this process, and ensure that it is informed by the people these decisions will impact. This participation can also encourage citizens to register, vote and remain politically engaged.
Application for Congressional Redistricting Commission and Application for Legislative Redistricting Commission that will lead this process are available now and are due by Nov. 10, 2020.
