The basics of Indiana Redistricting


Background of the Fight to End Partisan Redistricting in Indiana

  • In 2016, the Special Interim Committee on Redistricting, a bipartisan panel of legislators and citizens recommended the General Assembly pass a law to create a 9 member redistricting commission.
  • In 2017 and 2018, Speaker of the House Brian Bosma and Rep. Jerry Torr sponsored legislation based on this recommendation. It received a hearing in the Elections Committee but not a vote. The bill died after receiving overwhelming support in the Senate in 2018.
  • This year, Senators John Ruckelshaus, Mike Bohacek and Jon Ford have sponsored a bill for the Senate, Senate Bill 91.
  • The Indiana Coalition for Independent Redistricting is working to get this bill a committee hearing and a VOTE! Call your State Senator today at (800) 382-9467!
