About the Process
The Board of Apportionment, consisting of the Governor, Secretary of State and Attorney General, was created in 1936 by Amendment 23 to the Arkansas Constitution. Over the next few months, the Board will be redrawing 100 House & 35 Senate Districts so that each district meets various legal criteria, including each district being about the same size in population. This "redistricting" is required by law once every 10 years after the Federal Census. You can see our timeline by going to the events calendar page. The Board of Apportionment only “redistricts” the Arkansas House & Senate (Legislative Seats), not Congressional Seats – that is the responsibility of the Arkansas General Assembly.
