Shoreline is in the 32nd Legislative District

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

Due to confusion about maps provided for the new legislative districts, some groups are being told that a sliver of Shoreline ended up in the 46th Legislative District.

No so, according to Genevieve O'Sullivan, Communications Director of the Washington State Redistricting Committee. 

Shoreline is fully within the 32nd Legislative District. Lake Forest Park and Kenmore are fully within the new 46th Legislative District. This is the first time in decades that Lake Forest Park and Shoreline have been separated.

The new districts, which were finalized by the state legislature last week, will take effect with the November elections.

According to the Redistricting Committee:
For now, legislators and congressional members will continue to represent their current districts (as adopted in 2002). Following this year’s General Election (November 6th) current legislators will immediately begin to represent their new districts. Newly elected legislators will begin representing their districts on the first day of the 2013 session.

Representatives are elected every two years.
Holdover senators (those up in 2014) will also continue to represent their current districts for now and begin to represent their new districts following the 2012 General Election.

Political organizations, however, are starting to meet with their new members.
