Lieutenant Governor Greg Bell: 2012 Political District Maps

The Lieutenant Governor’s Office launched the Utah Political District Maps website that displays interactive maps of the State House, State Senate, State Board of Education and Congressional Districts recently passed by the Utah State Legislature.  These maps are considered the official boundary maps for the four types of districts.  This site will also incorporate minor technical changes allowed by S.B. 3005, a bill passed at the end of the redistricting special session.

A link to this web site is provided below.
