JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A new map has now been set for the 40 districts in the Florida Senate.
A Senate committee approved the new map on January 13. That process included randomly designating each district with an even or odd number. The numbering scheme matters because after the 2022 elections, districts with an odd number will be up for election again in 2024. Even-numbered districts will not be up for election again until 2026.
The full Senate approved the map in early February, along with the state House map.
In Florida, state legislative maps do not require the governor’s signature to take effect. They are reviewed by the Florida Supreme Court, which upheld the maps on March 3.
The maps are now in place for qualifying for state legislative seats in June, before the primary election on August 23 and the general election on November 8.
