LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- On Friday, the state got a first look at Kentucky democrats' plan to redraw district lines in the state.

This is occurring ahead of Monday's special legislative session.

State republicans released their plan on Thursday, and the republican senate president said he expects overwhelming support for the proposal when it's voted on during the session.

Redistricting happens every ten years in order to account for population changes recorded by the U.S. Census and this year, Kentucky needs a major reconfiguration.

Last year, an initial redistricting plan was stuck down by Kentucky's Supreme Court because it found the proposed districts weren't balanced.
