Task Force on Redistricting and Elections

TASK FORCE ON REDISTRICTING AND ELECTIONS

Mission

NCSL’s Redistricting and Elections Task Force, a project of NCSL’s Executive Committee, focuses on redistricting, election law and campaign finance regulation. It studies legal, technical and political issues affecting redistricting of state legislative and congressional districts, the conduct of elections and the regulation of campaign finance.

The task force is the conduit for state legislative communication with the U.S. Census Bureau, the Voting Section of the U.S. Department of Justice, and the U.S. Election Assistance Commission. The task force sets the agenda for NCSL staff who work in these areas, and provides educational opportunities for legislators and legislative staff through meetings, webinars and field trips.
