Alabama Legislature expected to go into special session Oct. 28

MONTGOMERY - Governor Kay Ivey sent a letter to all members of the Alabama Legislature dated today, Oct. 14, letting them know that she will soon issue a formal proclamation calling them back into special session.

The session, which will begin Thursday, Oct. 28, according to Ivey's letter, is being called to address redistricting, where the legislature redraws voting districts in accordance with population counts from the U.S. Census.  The census was taken in 2020, with results released to states in August in order to begin the redistricting process.  Currently, legislative committees are meeting to draw up prospective maps, which will be approved by the entire legislature.

Additional details regarding the upcoming session should be released soon, according to Ivey's letter.
