Redistricting in Utah

The following timeline is a high-level overview outlining major redistricting events and activity in the state of Utah over the last 10 years.

2011

Census data delivered to Utah.

With trifecta control, Republicans passed state legislative and congressional maps that altered districts to favor Republicans, including drastically changing the composition of a historically Democratic district to lean Republican.

2018

Utahns have the opportunity to support a bipartisan ballot initiative to protect voters in the redistricting process.
