The Utah Independent Redistricting Commission has presented new district maps for congress.
Every ten years, the Utah State Legislature uses data from the census to determine the sizes of Utah’s State Senate, State House of Representatives and the State Board of Education districts.
Redistricting ensures that there is an equal amount of voters in each district and they are equally represented. The legislature will consider the Independent Redistricting Commission’s feedback and seek opinions from the public before making a final decision on the new boundaries.
