    Does anyone know how state redistricting will affect the whole nomination process?

    More specifically, DS has started paperwork with current Representative (2016). If we get moved into another district, does he start over with new Representative? Worst case, we get merged with another district (state losing one seat) which requires a runoff between the two existing Representatives. Timing could then become a factor. It appears there are numerous possible scenarios and it’s unclear when anything officially take effect.

    Bottom line, sound like DS has some additional research to do. I’m just a parent that plans/investigates a bit sooner than DS preparing to offer support when called upon.

    Thanks in advance.

    You must be nominated by the MOC in whose district you reside.

    Once redistricting is done, someone has to be elected and take office. That (the taking office) occurs in January. Thus, any new/redistricted MOCs should be in place well in time for the SA admissions cycle, which begins in May/June.

    There shouldn't be any redistricted MOCs due to redistricting for the Class of 2016.
