Every 10 years, state officials are required to redraw state General Assembly and congressional seats. Though this may sound like a just a step in the legislative process, it has a great impact on you. Where the lines are drawn determines who is eligible to represent you and your neighbors in the state House, state Senate and in Congress.

Rightly so, the bi-partisan Legislative Reapportionment Commission, made up of two Republicans and two Democrats, and a chair selected by the state Supreme Court, redraw the state House of Representatives and Senate districts.
