Colorado redistricting starts today, and you can make a difference!
Every 10 years after the Census, Colorado redraws its congressional and legislative districts to equalize population. Simple in theory, this process has increasingly been subject to gerrymandering and political gamesmanship in Colorado. And this process is more important now than it has ever been.
In 2018, Colorado voters approved Amendments Y & Z to help end gerrymandering by creating two politically balanced citizen commissions, one to redraw congressional districts and one to redraw state legislative districts. It’s up to us to make sure these new citizen commissions work – and they will only work if Coloradans apply to serve.
Ensure a fair outcome for Colorado’s future and apply today.
