Summary

A YES VOTE would amend the constitution to require that the periodic redrawing of district boundaries for state legislators and governor's councillors use new census data two years earlier than under the current system.

A NO VOTE would make no change in the current four-year process for redrawing such district boundaries.

This proposed constitutional amendment would require that new district boundaries for state representatives, state senators, and governor's councillors, which are redrawn every ten years be based on the most recent federal census, take effect for the state election held two years after the federal census, rather than the election four years after the census under the current system.
