Constitutional Amendment, Senate Resolution 8210
The Washington State Constitution requires that a commission meet every 10 years to redistrict state legislative and congressional districts, according to the secretary of state’s voter guide. The commission must be established in January of each year ending in a one, and it has until Jan. 1 of the next year to complete a plan. If the joint resolution is approved, the commission would have to complete its plan earlier, by Nov. 15 of the same year it is established.
Supporters say the plan allows counties enough time to prepare for elections with new boundaries. No one submitted an opposition statement about the proposal to the secretary of state.
