INDIANAPOLIS — State Republicans released their proposed map for redistricting the state's Senate seats.
Republicans said the redistricting complies with all state and federal requirements and keeps 65 Indiana counties from being split into multiple Senate districts.

Indiana Republicans have already submitted proposals for Indiana's congressional and state House districts.
According to the lawmakers, the proposed Indiana House map increases the number of counties that are wholly contained within one House district from 26 to 32 while also decreasing the number of townships that are represented by multiple House districts. The proposed congressional map keeps 84 of Indiana's 92 counties whole.
Indiana's Congressional District 1 includes far northwest Indiana and District 7 includes most of Indianapolis and Marion County.
Congressional District 5 currently includes the northern portion of Marion County. The new map shows District 5 dropping those Marion County voters — they would vote in District 7 instead — and that could be a big help to Republicans.
