The Gaggle: How the proposed redistricting maps look for the future of Arizona politics – The Arizona Republic

On Oct. 28, 2021, the five-member Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission adopted new lines for political districts in the state. The new legislative and congressional maps had little contention by the bipartisan commission.

The general public now has 30 days to look over the proposed maps and share their thoughts before the finalization date of Dec. 22.

The final decision will impact Arizona politics for the next decade. The draft maps are online for the public to view on the Independent Redistricting Commission website. 

In this week’s episode of The Gaggle, an Arizona politics podcast, host Ron Hansen talks with Dr. Erika Neuberg, the head of the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission, about what has been proposed so far. Then, Arizona Republic reporter Ray Stern joins the show to break down what this will mean in upcoming elections.
