Wyoming

HELENA, Montana: Last week, the Wyoming government launched a redistricting website to take the next step in the map-drawing process.[1]

Among the items available to the public on the website are:

The first public meeting is scheduled for May 25 while the final meeting would be August 16. Currently, 11 total meetings have been scheduled.

The Senate district with the greatest population deviation is District 23, currently represented by John Hines (R). That district has a new population of 26,474, which is 40.91% above the ideal level of 18,788. In the House, District 31 has the greatest deviation with a population of 14,418 -- 53.48% above the ideal population of 9,394 for House districts.

Because Wyoming only has 1 Congressional district for the whole state, the redistricting process is only necessary for state legislative districts. There are 30 senators and 60 representatives.
