Public Hearings Set For Redrawing Of AZ Congressional, Legislative Districts
Public hearings are on tap this week in Coconino County as a commission works to redraw congressional and legislative districts.
The Independent Redistricting Commission will hold a meeting at Yavapai College in Prescott this evening. Another is slated for Wednesday at the Lake Havasu City Civic Center Wednesday, Thursday at the NAU High Country Conference Center in Flagstaff, and Friday at the Navajo Nation Museum in Window Rock. Satellite locations will be open in Page, Tuba City, Kingman and Congress. Census data is used to determine the redistricting process; full 2020 census figures are set to be released by mid-August after delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Data published earlier this year, however, eliminates any chance for the state to add a congressional seat due to insufficient population growth.
