In 2021, voting districts will be redrawn across the country based on results of the 2020 Census. The way districts are drawn has a big impact on both voters and lawmakers. It can influence who wins elections, how political power is distributed, which communities are represented, and, ultimately, which laws are passed. This process creates a powerful incentive for politicians to manipulate district lines for their own gain. And over the last two decades, these manipulations have grown increasingly common and sophisticated.
We are working to ensure that the next redistricting process will be fair. We track state redistricting reform and support solutions that remove maps from the hands of politicians, including independent redistricting commissions.
