Monroe County and Bloomington seek applicants for redistricting advisory groups

The Bloomington Council will be redrawing its six districts.

More information about the council’s Citizens’ Redistricting Advisory Commission, including an application, is here.

Local redistricting work can’t be finished until the state-level districts are drawn. If an existing precinct is split by a state legislative or congressional district, it has to be redrawn so that it is not split.

This week Republicans released their proposed Indiana House and U.S. House district maps

The proposed Indiana Senate map will be released next week.
