Redistricting is the once-a-decade process when boundaries of legislative districts are redrawn to account for population shifts identified in the national Census. A voter-approved constitutional amendment makes a bipartisan group of eight lawmakers and eight citizens responsible for drawing legislative districts. This once-in-a-decade process is taking place now.
