    Getting Involved

    The Committee to Conduct an Interim Study of the Requirements for Reapportionment and Redistricting in the State of Nevada is now active through the 2019 – 2020 Interim. Every 10 years, during the interim prior to each redistricting session, the Nevada Legislature conducts an interim study of the requirements for reapportionment and redistricting. This interim study “sets the stage” in advance of the redistricting session to ensure the Legislature is prepared to commence reapportionment and redistricting as soon as statewide data from the United States Census Bureau is received.

    2019-2020 Legislative Interim

    Senate Concurrent Resolution 9 (2019) directs the Legislative Commission to conduct an interim study of the requirements for the reapportionment and redistricting of election districts for Nevada’s members of the State Legislature, the United States House of Representatives, and the Board of Regents of the Nevada System of Higher Education. 

    The Committee to Conduct an Interim Study of the Requirements for Reapportionment and Redistricting in the State of Nevada will be examining and monitoring redistricting systems established or recommended by the Nevada Legislature, reviewing pertinent case law, reviewing redistricting programs and plans used in other states, and ensuring the continuation of Nevada’s participation in programs of the U.S. Census Bureau, including the decennial census, to ensure a complete and accurate count of all Nevadans. Members of the public have the opportunity to testify and provide comments to the committee at any of its public meetings. Follow the Committee’s activities and meetings here.

    2021 Legislative Session

    The 81st session of the Nevada Legislature will convene February 1, 2021.

    Redistricting bills will be heard by the Assembly Committee on Legislative Operations and Elections and the Senate Committee on Legislative Operations and Elections (unless indicated otherwise by Joint Standing Rule). All committee meetings are open to the public and provide members of the public the opportunity to testify and offer comments on the redistricting process and proposed plans. Generally, committee meetings take place in Carson City and are made available by videoconference to the Grant Sawyer State Office Building in Las Vegas. More information on these committees will be provided during the 2021 Legislative Session.
