Indiana Secretary of State Holli Sullivan offered the following statement following the passage of redistricting maps for Indiana.

“Now that the Indiana General Assembly has completed the important work of drawing Indiana’s Congressional and legislative districts, my office will begin the work of inputting the new maps into our systems.”

“While the drawing of district lines is done solely in the legislature, the Secretary of State’s office will continue to work as a conduit of information as the maps are made available to county clerks and election administrators in Indiana’s 92 counties.”

About Redistricting

The Indiana General Assembly is required by law to redraw its districts for the U.S. House of Representatives, the Indiana House of Representatives and Indiana Senate following the nationwide census every 10 years. The legislation is then signed by the governor.
