Arkansas legislators are expected back into session Sept. 29 in part to discuss how
to redivide the state’s four U.S. House of Representative districts now that more
2020 Census data is available.
State senators and representatives are tasked with redistricting congressional seats
while the governor, attorney general and secretary state as the Board of Apportionment
are responsible for determining districts for the state legislature.
Congressional boundaries will have to shift to accommodate for population gains and
losses across the state. State officials say they need to work toward 753,439 people
in each of the four districts.
To accomplish this goal, there are people living in the Third District today who won't
be at this time next year. Several of the proposals already submitted by legislators
would change which counties are included in the Third District, which needs to shed
about 51,000 people to another district.
As of 11 a.m., Wednesday, Oct. 6, Arkansas representatives and senators had filed
a combined 33 proposed maps to consider. They are:
At the state Capitol, the House and Senate State Agencies and Governmental Affairs
committees review proposed congressional maps. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette has a
graphic showing what the filed proposals look like.
The Board of Apportionment held a series of public meetings over the summer to get
a sense of the public’s thoughts on how to accommodate massive growth in Northwest
Arkansas and a population decline to the south and east. You can watch those meetings
Have an opinion about how the districts should be drawn for Arkansas House and Senate
seats? Public comment is now being taken online.
The boundaries for the person who represents you in all levels of government may change
depending on whether your community grew in Census population or lost.
Join us 10 a.m., Sept. 29 on Zoom to learn what “redistricting” looks like at the
Local officials will share what the redistricting process looks like and how you can
get involved or follow along with proposed changes.
