The Latest

On June 13, 2011, the Redistricting Board issued its final state legislative plan, which was precleared on October 11. On February 3, 2012, a state court rejected the plan, remanding to the Redistricting Board to redraw four districts; on appeal, the state Supreme Cout decided on March 15 that the Board should restart the process, drawing lines first under the state Constitution and only then adjusting for Voting Rights Act compliance where necessary. On April 5, the Redistricting Board issued a new state legislative plan; on April 20, the plan was again rejected by the courts, and remanded for redrawing, but on reconsideration on appeal, the state Supreme Court ordered the temporary use of the April 5 plans as interim maps for 2012 only. That interim plan was precleared on June 27, 2012.

The Redistricting Board resumed deliberations in June 2013. On July 14, it adopted a new plan governing elections going forward. That plan was again challenged in court, but on November 18, 2013, a court rejected the challenges.
