Redistricting/Reapportionment in New Jersey


Redistricting/Reapportionment in New Jersey

After the official results of the U. S. Census which is conducted every ten years, are made available, two groups are convened to establish districts based on population from which representatives are elected.  The process is different for legislative districts and congressional districts. Each process is delineated in the New Jersey State Constitution.
