Maryland Citizens Redistricting Commission

The process of redistricting occurs every 10 years following the decennial Census. The most recent Census concluded in October 2020 and though the data has not been finalized and made available by the U.S. Census Bureau, planning for the redistricting of Maryland is now underway.

On January 12, 2021, Governor Hogan issued an Executive Order forming the Maryland Citizens Redistricting Commission. The Commission is charged with revising the congressional and legislative district lines in a fair and impartial manner.

On February 12th, the USCB released an announcementthat the data used for redistricting will be distributed to the states “by September 30th”. Once the data is received, it must be adjusted in compliance with Maryland law to have incarcerated individuals reallocated to their last known address. This is required at the local and municipal level as well as the congressional and state level. We are prepared to have that process begin as soon as we receive the data and estimate that it may take at least an additional 30 days to accomplish completion of this task before final data is available.

This site will provide you more information about reapportionment and redistricting to help you understand the process and be better informed. It will also allow the Commission to share valuable information with the residents of Maryland so that they can be engaged in the process from start to finish.
