Update: New legislative district boundaries in effect for 2024 election cycle after stay requests denied

In March, Federal District Court Judge Robert Lasnick revealed revised legislative district maps following his ruling last year that boundaries set by Washington’s Bi-Partisan Redistricting Commission violated federal law in one Yakima region district (See March 28 IWR).  

Judge Lasnick’s redistricting affects 13 legislative districts statewide, resulting in the displacement of two House Representatives and three State Senators. Opponents of the new boundaries sought stays from both the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court pending trial outcomes. Last week, both courts declined to issue stays, thus confirming the implementation of the new district boundaries for the 2024 election cycle.
