Read Statement from the Commission Chair (Updated Nov. 16, 2021)

Washington State Redistricting Commission

The four voting Commissioners on the Washington State Redistricting Commission were unable to adopt a districting plan by the midnight deadline on November 15, 2021.

Thank you to the thousands of citizens that engaged with the redistricting process.

Under the leadership of the most diverse Commission ever appointed, staff executed a public outreach campaign to solicit the people for their input into the mapping process. Participation in the 2021 redistricting process was historic, and unprecedented. The Commission hopes the Washington Supreme Court will utilize the public input accumulated over the last ten months.

Commission approved maps are now available to the public.

Pursuant to RCW 44.05.100, the Supreme Court now has jurisdiction to adopt a new redistricting plan for Legislative and Congressional Districts in Washington State. However, the Commission have made their approved district maps available online for the public. You can access the maps and additional data now.

How does the redistricting process work?

Redistricting happens once every ten years, and the Commission is appointed to redraw election maps.

The 2021 Washington State Redistricting Commission is creating Washington’s new congressional and legislative districts based on 2020 census data. Watch our video to learn how you and your community can participate in the process.
