2021 COLORADO REDISTRICTING

Every 10 years, states redraw their political boundaries to meet the needs of the population. For the first time, Colorado will use two independent commissions to draw these lines.


As a civic engagement organization, Voces Unidas is committed to ensuring that the outcome and final maps are equitable for our Latino communities -- one of the fastest growing segments of the population.


This year, Colorado will also get an 8th Congressional district due to a 14.5% growth in population, according to the 2020 U.S. Census. The full scope of the census data has yet to be released, but the idea of an 8th congressional district in Colorado is an opportunity for Coloradoans to send another member to Congress to represent more Coloradoans.


Colorado has an obligation to ensure that the boundaries are drawn with accurate representation in mind. The decisions made during this process will inform policy and decisions surrounding our community for the next decade. Therefore, it’s imperative that Colorado gets this right.


The Colorado Independent Congressional and Legislative Redistricting Commissions, created in 2018 through Amendment Y and Z, will draw Colorado's congressional and state legislative districts in 2021.


Full U.S. Census data will be available by September 30, 2021, rather than by March 31, 2021. The preliminary congressional map was released on June 26 and the preliminary legislative map was released on June 29. Both are available for viewing below:
