Colorado Legislative Redistricting

In re: Colorado Independent Legislative Redistricting Commission

Petition filed in the Colorado Supreme Court by Colorado’s Independent Legislative Redistricting Commission to begin the review process of legislative maps required by the Colorado Constitution. An amendment passed in 2018 requires the Colorado Supreme Court to review both passed congressional and legislative maps and determine if they comply with the state’s redistricting criteria. The court, as asked in the petition, established a schedule for drafting and submitting final Colorado House of Representatives and Senate maps. Interested parties were invited to submit briefing in support of or against the final maps and attend an oral argument on Oct. 25; an audio recording of the argument can be found here. The state Supreme Court approved both maps, concluding that the Commission complied with all state and federal redistricting criteria.
