Portal:State legislatures
Every 10 years the redistricting process alters state legislative districts in the 50 states. By nature, this can at times lead to an incumbent's district being altered significantly by the process. The incumbent is faced with three choices:
  • Move to a new home that in either their old district or a new district
  • Run for election in an entirely new district as a challenger
  • Do not run for re-election at all

This page details the state legislators who have opted not to seek re-election to the chamber in which they are an incumbent. The names on this page are somewhat subjective and unlikely to be comprehensive. For example, a legislator could resign and claim that redistricting had nothing to do with it. Or a legislator could resign because of the redistricting map but never make any mention of that, and thus, Ballotpedia staff would have no way of ascertaining that information. Thus, the names on this page are simply a product of those found in news stories that made it quite clear why the incumbent chose not to seek re-election.
