Toni Larson President CO League of Women Voters
Gerrymandering

Toni E. Larson, Ph.D. President  League of Women Voters Colorado

Colorado has seven congressional districts with a possible eighth district expected after the 2020 census.  The General Assembly is comprised of 35 single-member senate districts and 65 house districts.  Only one of the state’s congressional districts is considered competitive, and the General Assembly is considered somewhat slanted toward Democrats. While we do not see Colorado’s districts gerrymandered to the extent seen in some states, the redistricting process can certainly be improved and made more competitive.
