Delaware’s Political Lineup
The deadline for state legislative redistricting is June 30, 2001.
Who’s in Charge of Redistricting?
The legislature. The leadership in both houses is responsible for drawing separate plans for their respective houses, but the Governor has veto power.
Currently two public hearings are scheduled to get feedback on plans outlined by the Senate and House. Please see the Hearings schedule inWhat's New for details.
With only one representative, there is no need for congressional redistricting. State legislative districts are separately handled by the majority and minority leadership in each house. The governor, however, has veto power, which in 2001 gives Democrats the edge in state redistricting plans.
