The 2020 General Election ballot includes State Public Question #3 which asks:
“Do you approve amending the Constitution to change when new legislative districts are created if the federal census data is delayed?”
This constitutional amendment would change when new legislative districts are created if the federal census data is delayed. If approved, the redistricting schedule would be delayed. Legislators would be elected for a two-year term beginning in 2021 from existing districts that were created after the 2010 redistricting process. The new districts will be used starting with the next scheduled general election for the State legislature in 2023.
