TOPEKA, Kansas: No developments have occurred recently relating to redistricting in Kansas. However, here is a summary of how the process works in the state:

Redistricting in Kansas is carried out by the Kansas Legislature. Kansas is one of the only states to use state-adjusted census figures. These adjusted figures account for non-resident students and military personnel.

The 2010 Census showed 6.1% population growth, with a notable concentration in the state's northeast. Kansas City and other eastern areas picked up population largely due to growth among Hispanics. In contrast, the state's rural West lost populations in almost all its counties. The legislative committees in charge of redistricting met for the first time on June 1 to begin the redistricting process.
