Action Alert for Redistricting

The following is an action alert from our allies at the League of Women Voters on Redistricting.


Call Legislators today about  House Concurrent Resolution 61 calling for an open redistricting process!


Redistricting Congressional and KY House and Senate boundaries will happen during the 2022 legislature and once enacted, will be in effect for 10 YEARS! In the past, redistricting has been done behind closed doors!

HCR 61 calls for an open process with opportunities for public input.

Call House leaders and your own legislator today and ask them to hear and support HCR 61 and open up the process.

Call 1-800-372-7181 and ask legislators to:

Please assign HCR 61 to a committee and support its passage to create an open redistricting process. Kentucky deserves a transparent redistricting process with opportunities for public input.

If your representative is not in leadership, leave a message for him or her also! Not sure who represents you? Go to Who is my Legislator?

Members of House Leadership:

House State Government Committee Chair

House Elections, Constitutional Amendments and Intergovernmental Affairs Committee Chair

Background on Redistricting:

Redistricting is one of the most consequential duties of the legislature.

Every 10 years, after census data has been collected, legislators must redraw Congressional, state House and state Senate district boundaries to assure one person, one vote – as close to equal population numbers per district as possible.

2020 Census data will be released in late September 2021 and districts are to be redrawn for the 2022 election cycle.

In the past, district lines have been drawn behind closed doors, with no hearings or public input. In these contentious, partisan times, this work must be transparent, with public hearings and opportuntities for public input.

House Concurrent Resolution (HRC) 61 would do just that, but it must be assigned to a committee and be heard in order to pass.

Ask members of leadership to assign HCR 61 to a committee and support its passage to provide an open and transparent redistricting process.
