What is Redistricting?
Every decade, government entities like states, cities, counties, and special districts are required by law to analyze their district maps to ensure they meet regulations. If they do not, they are required by law to redraw their district maps. In 2021, district boundaries will be redrawn from coast to coast based on data collected during the 2020 census.
