Florida Supreme Court approves legislative maps for 2022 election

The Senate and House lines are set for this year, but congressional boundaries are still in the works.

The Florida Supreme Court has cleared a new state House and Senate map for the 2022 elections.
The automatic review of cartography crafted and approved by the Florida Legislature closes a once-a-decade redistricting process, at least for state legislative lines.

The court gave its stamp of approval to a new Senate map (S 8058) with 40 districts and a House map (H 2013) with 120 seats.

A partisan performance analysis by MCI Maps shows the Senate map includes 23 districts where a plurality or majority voted for Republican Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election, and 17 where voters picked Democrat Joe Biden. The state went to Trump by three percentage points. Currently, the Senate has 24 Republican members and 15 Democrats, with one vacancy in a Democrat-leaning seat.
