Who determined the new voting districts?

Based on the 2020 census figures, the Rhode Island General Assembly established the boundaries for the state’s two congressional districts, the 38 state Senate districts, and the 75 state Representative districts. The new district boundaries were signed into law by the Governor on February 16, 2022.

Once the state legislative districts were established, the local Boards of Canvassers across Rhode Island were responsible for drawing the boundaries for the new voting districts (precincts) for the polling places within each city or town.
