House Redistricting Process

The Oklahoma Legislature is tasked with redrawing state legislative and congressional district lines every 10 years, following the federal decennial census. Oklahoma has 101 House districts, 48 Senate districts and was assigned 5 congressional seats following federal reapportionment. According to the 2020 Census, the state’s resident population is 3,959,353, an increase 5.5 percent from 2010.

Due to population shifts within the state, this once-every-decade task is necessary to ensure equal representation will exist for equal numbers of people. The new district boundaries will be used to conduct state congressional and legislative elections beginning in 2022 through 2030.

The House redistricting process is led by the House State and Federal Redistricting Committee and its eight regional subcommittees. All 101 House members serve on a regional subcommittee based on county boundaries.
