HB20-1010:Colorado Accurate Residence For Redistricting Act

Voting Rights
Bill Number: HB20:1010
Year: 2020
ACLU Position: Support
Sponsors: J. Coleman/ K. Tipper


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 only, the bill 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 redistricted using the address of the correctional facility.
The bill directs the department of corrections to report data it already collects to the legislative council staff and the office of legislative legal services (nonpartisan staff) and nonpartisan staff to adjust the redistricting data file of population to be used in redistricting of legislative and congressional districts.
