Redistricting Reform

Redistricting can determine which lawmakers represent constituents’ interests and whose voices are heard. We’re working to end gerrymandering and make the process independent, inclusive, and transparent.

Overview

Redis­trict­ing, which takes place every ten years, is a crit­ical compon­ent of our elect­oral system and an import­ant process for fair polit­ical repres­ent­a­tion. The way lines are drawn affects how and which politi­cians repres­ent constitu­ents’ interests. Lawmakers and stake­hold­ers around the coun­try are work­ing on reforms that could change how redis­trict­ing is done in 2021.  

The Bren­nan Center supports redis­trict­ing reform that would end gerry­man­der­ing and make the process more inde­pend­ent, inclus­ive, trans­par­ent, and which would ensure that communit­ies are fully and fairly repres­en­ted in Congress and state legis­latures.
