Redistricting -- Congressional map precleared

Tomorrow was the deadline for the Department of Justice to respond to submission of the proposed Congressional map Arizona expects to WILL use for the next decade. Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission director Ray Bladine said DOJ delivered a letter this afternoon saying that the federal government has NO OBJECTION to the map. Additional information and details will be forthcoming.

The AIRC may not receive word on the legislative district map, which was submitted to DOJ on February 28, until the near the end of this month.

  1. This is great news and showed that the AIRC did their job and did it well. Especially considering the political games played by the Republican Party here in Arizona.

    Are the Congressional Districts perfect? No, but they are as close to perfect as we can hope.

    Good job AIRC and thank you DOJ for the pre-clearance!
