CARSON CITY, Nev. (KOLO) - Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak has announced he will call the state legislature into special session on Friday, November 12th at 1 P.M. to redistrict the state.

Sisolak says the date and time of the session was coordinated with legislative leadership.

The Democratic party holds majorities in both the State Senate and Assembly. Earlier this week, Democratic party leaders unveiled their proposed redistricting maps.

Nevada did not gain any Congressional seats in the 2020 Census, but the Legislature has to redraw the district maps to represent population shifts.

There have been 10 map proposals submitted. You can see the options at Redistricting.leg.state.nv.us.

In addition to the Congressional districts, the Legislature must also remap the State Senate, State Assembly and Board of Regents districts.
