2011 Reapportionment & Redistricting Home
On December 8, 2011, First Judicial District Court Judge, James T. Russell, issued what is believed to be a final addendum to his October 27, 2011, order setting forth districts for the Nevada State Senate and Assembly and Nevadaï¿½s Congressional Districts as drawn by the Court's Special Masters. Copies of these maps, relevant statistical data, and the Special Master's report can be viewed online at http://www.leg.state.nv.us/Division/Research/Districts/Reapp/2011/FinalPlans.cfm. Copies of maps and statistical tables for the Board of Regents of the University of Nevada are also included on this page.
Every ten years, following the Federal Census, the Nevada State Legislature is responsible for reapportioning and redistricting the districts for:
- The United States House of Representatives;
- The Nevada State Senate;
- The Nevada State Assembly;
- The Nevada System of Higher Education Board of Regents; and
- The State Board of Education.
Nevada has adequate population to gain a fourth congressional seat and, therefore, the Legislature must divide the Stateï¿½s population as nearly as practicable into fourths for these four members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The legislative committees charged with reapportionment and redistricting for the 2011 Legislative Session are the Senate and Assembly Committees on Legislative Operations and Elections.
Local governments also reapportion and redistrict the districts for county commission, city council, and school board of trustees. Please contact one of these local governing bodies in your community for more information.
There are two public redistricting workstations, one in Las Vegas, and one in Carson City. Training is provided and appointments would guarantee availability.
