In a little more than a year, voters will be deluged with ads, mailers and street corner sign-wavers touting another election. Much will be the same: Republicans, Democrats, all that.
What will be different are the congressional, state Senate and House of Representatives districts. In coming months, maps will be redrawn as the Constitution requires, to better balance representation. Because of growth, the I-4 corridor, from Daytona Beach to Tampa, is expected to see the greatest change.
The process for determining where a federal or state elected representative’s district begins and ends is a political one in Florida, where lawmakers have begun the work of remapping the state. Their work is largely based on population data from the 2020 Census, which shows the movement of people over the past decade.
