Redistricting in Wyandotte County
Kansas lawmakers are redrawing congressional lines and some Wyandotte County residents are concerned with one map that could change who represents the area in the U.S. House of Representatives.
State lawmakers said they must redraw district lines based on population growth in the 3rd Congressional District, currently represented by Democrat Sharice Davids.
A map called "Ad Astra" is gaining traction in Topeka and would divide Wyandotte County along Interstate 70. The northern part of the county would be in the 2nd Congressional District, currently represented by Republican Jake LaTurner. The new 3rd Congressional district would include the southern part of Wyandotte County along with Johnson County, Franklin, Miami, and Anderson Counties.
