Mission Statement

NCSL’s Redistricting and Elections Standing 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 committee 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 committee 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.
