Arizona’s Independent Redistricting Commission (IRC) is in the early stages of its work of redrawing the state’s congressional districts in time for the race leading up to the 2022 midterm election. Complicating matters even further is the fact the state will add a 10th Congressional District because of population increases confirmed by the census.
