Summary: This citizen initiative would give responsibility for legislative and congressional redistricting to a 12-member redistricting commission. The state legislature would no longer have the authority to draw legislative and congressional maps. A panel of 3 administrative law judges would be appointed to review the applications and the Secretary of State would select the first 6 commissioners by lot, 2 affiliated with the largest political party in the sate, 2 affiliated with the second largest political party in the state, and 2 unaffiliated as described by the measure. The 6 randomly-selected commissioners would then choose the final 6 commissioners by March 15, 2023, and thereafter August 15 in each year ending in the number zero.
