Welcome to FloridaRedistricting.org. House Speaker Steve Crisafulli and Senate President Andy Gardiner have called for a Special Session to amend a portion Florida’s Congressional Districts consistent with the July 9, 2015 ruling from the Florida Supreme Court in The League of Women Voters of Florida v. Detzner. The Special Session (Special Session “B”) will be held from August 10-August 21, 2015.
To make it easier for the public to review what the Legislature is considering and allow for all legislative actions to be discussed in an open and transparent manner, legislative staff, in collaboration with counsel, will draft a base map that follows the Supreme Court order. Staff will be instructed to begin their work by redrawing Congressional Districts 5, 13, 14, 21, 22, 25, 26 and 27 in compliance with the recent ruling of the Florida Supreme Court and to make any necessary conforming changes consistent with Article III, Section 20, of the Florida Constitution.
For more details on how legislative staff will draw the base map, please see the full memorandum from Speaker Crisafulli and President Gardiner to the members of the Florida House and Senate here.
Once the base map has been completed, we will post the map to this website for the public to review and provide time for any comments or map submissions. Please check back with this website soon. If during the process you would like to submit a comment on the map or submit a map of your own, please see our PUBLIC INPUT tab to the right of your screen. Please note that in order to have your suggestion considered by the House, you must complete the Florida Congressional Redistricting Suggestion Form, which can be found here.
Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.
