Idaho's Redistricting Plan 2011

Current Idaho Legislative Districts

The U.S. Constitution calls for a census every ten years and then requires the states to redraw congressional and legislative districts to ensure equal representation. Idaho uses a Redistricting Commission to decide where those lines should be drawn.

Joan Cartan-Hansen and her guests review the Commission's plans and discuss their potential impact on Idaho's congressional and state legislative delegations. Guests include Commission members Lou Esposito (Republican) and George Moses (Democrat), as well as Betsy Russell, Spokesman-Review Boise Bureau Chief and Gary Moncrief, Professor of Political Science at Boise State University.
