Senate Session Gallery Access-Monday, November 1, 2021
Every 10 years, states must redraw their legislative districts based on the most recent federal Census data.
This process, known as redistricting, requires the General Assembly to follow a very specific, very technical set of guidelines. There are numerous criteria each district must meet, including containing a relatively similar population size and meeting guidelines concerning contiguity, compactness, communities of interest and observing natural or political boundaries, all while maintaining majority-minority districts.
On Monday, November 1, the General Assembly will convene to consider the redrawn maps.
Slots are available on a first come, first served basis. Doors to the Senate gallery will open at 11:30 am. This sign up will close on the date of Session at 10 AM.
Once registered, please make sure to read the information listed in the confirmation email.
Date: 11/01/2021 (Mon.)
Time: 12:00pm – 4:00pm EDT
