Case Information

The Colorado Independent Congressional Redistricting Commission petitioned the Colorado Supreme Court for the approval of a revised redistricting schedule in light of delays in the Census Bureau’s release of data.  On July 26, 2021, the court extended the commission’s deadline for submitting the final plan to Oct. 1, 2021.  In the same order, the court extended the deadline for the commission drawing state legislative maps to submit maps by Oct. 15, 2021.

On Oct. 1, 2021, the commission submitted its final congressional plans to the Colorado Supreme Court for approval.  Interested parties submitted briefs in support and in opposition to the final plans.

On Nov. 1, 2021, the Colorado Supreme Court approved the congressional plans, allowing them to go into effect.
