Redistricting in Indiana

April 12, 2010

In Indiana, the state legislature has primary responsibility for drawing the lines of both state legislative districts and Congress, subject to gubernatorial veto.  For congressional districts, if the legislature cannot agree on a plan by the end of the session in the year that census data is released, a “backup commission” is convened to take over the process: the commission consists of the Senate and House majority leaders, the chairs of the Senate and House apportionment committees, and one gubernatorial appointee.
