Indiana Redistricting Process
Redistricting is the process of redrawing state legislative and congressional district boundaries. The process occurs every 10 years following the decennial U.S. Census. The process used by Indiana is governed by the U.S. Constitution, our State Constitution, and other applicable laws.
The Indiana General Assembly initially planned to address redistricting in March or April of 2021. Due to delays at the U.S. Census Bureau, the necessary data wasn't available at that time. The U.S. Census Bureau delivered the census data needed for states to complete the redistricting process Aug. 12.

Draw your own Maps
The Indiana General Assembly is providing an online map-drawing portal for Hoosiers to draw their proposed new district boundaries for the U.S. House of Representatives, the Indiana House of Representatives and the Indiana Senate. The web portal contains all the same census and election data lawmakers will have access to as they draw the new Statehouse and congressional district maps.
The link to the portal may be found here: https://indistricting.iga.in.gov/
