The Florida Constitution directs the Legislature to redraw district boundaries at its Regular Session in the second year following each decennial census. Before and during the 2022 Regular Session, which began on January 11, 2022, the Legislature held interim committee meetings, at which time the committees met to workshop draft plans and to receive feedback from members and the public regarding the redistricting process.
On February 3, 2022, the Legislature passed CS/SJR 100, which contains state house and state senate districts for the qualification, nomination, and election of members of the Florida Legislature in the primary and general elections held in 2022 and thereafter. On March 3, 2022, the Florida Supreme Court deemed the state house and state senate maps valid pursuant to their constitutional review. See the following link to the opinion: (https://www.floridasupremecourt.org/content/download/830995/opinion/sc22-131.pdf).
On March 4, 2022, the Legislature passed CS/SB 102 to establish the state's congressional districts. The Governor vetoed CS/SB 102 on March 29, 2022, and issued a proclamation calling the Florida Legislature into Special Session C to consider a different proposal. Following the Special Session, SB 2-C was signed into law by the Governor on April 22, 2022, establishing the congressional districts of the state.
As required by SB 2-C and CS/SJR 100, EDR has now made the geographical information systems maps and block equivalency files for the newly enacted congressional districts and state legislative districts available to the public through the 2020 Redistricting links directly below.
