[ARCHIVED] Census Announces Delay in Apportionment Data to States

The U.S. Census Bureau recently announced that redistricting data to all states will be delivered by September 30, 2021. This is a six-month delay from the announced date of March 31, 2021 to deliver the data. The Census Bureau will deliver information all at once and not on a rolling basis, as has been the case in previous data delivery.

This past November, voters approved a state constitutional amendment to delay legislative redistricting if census data was not sent by February 15. Since that has occurred, legislative elections will take place with the current map in 2021 and a new legislative map will be in place for the 2023 elections.

If your municipality has ward elections that may be impacted by the census data delay, please check with your legal counsel for available options.
