Colorado Accurate Residence For Redistricting Act

Concerning the "Colorado Accurate Residence for Redistricting Act".
Session:
2020 Regular Session
Subject:
Elections & Redistricting
Bill Summary

For purposes of the census, the federal census bureau counts prisoners in the correctional facility in which they were housed as of April 1 of the year in which the census was taken. For redistricting purposes, the act reassigns those persons to their last known residence in Colorado prior to incarceration. If the last known residence is outside of Colorado or the last known residence is unknown, the prisoners are counted for purposes of redistricting at the correctional facility.

The act requires the department of corrections (department) to begin collecting and maintaining specified information on inmates to be able to provide that information following a federal census. It directs the department to report the information to the legislative council staff and the office of legislative legal services (nonpartisan staff) and directs nonpartisan staff to develop a database of population to be used in redistricting of congressional, state senate, and state house of representatives districts.
