Redistricting in Kentucky

Redistricting is the process used to define the districts for seats in the United States House of Representatives, in state legislatures and local government seats. In 2017 the League of Women Voters of Kentucky formed a committee to study redistricting and create a report to raise awareness of the importance of redistricting and provide recommendations to improve the process in Kentucky at the state level. The report was released at February 14 and can be found here.
