Episode 32: Mapping Idaho’s changing election landscape

Every 10 years, Idaho redraws its political map to reflect new Census numbers.

The new map shifts the political balance of power — and it could set up some fascinating elections in 2022. If the new map survives court challenges, that is.

This week, Clark Corbin of the Idaho Capital Sun joins Kevin Richert to talk about the redistricting process. They also preview next week’s return of the Legislature.
