What Redistricting Looks Like In Every State

The latest with redistricting

Nov. 23, 2021

Eighteen states — most recently Illinois — have now finished redrawing their congressional maps (not counting the six states with only one congressional district). And several other states are already deep into the process. Of particular note, California and Florida, home to 80 congressional districts between them, both released their first-draft maps this month.

At this point, Democrats have gained six seats nationally from the redistricting process, Republicans have gained two, and the number of competitive seats has dropped by five. Democrats have gained seats in part because of their control over redistricting in states like Illinois — whose new map creates 13 blue seats, three red seats and just one competitive seat — but also because Republicans in states like Texas gave Democratic incumbents safer districts in order to shore up their own seats. Republicans have also converted light-red districts into safer seats in states like Indiana, Oklahoma and Utah.

Some of the most heavily biased maps of the cycle have been enacted by Republicans in North Carolina and Ohio, but they are also so extreme that they run the risk of being overturned in court. There are already lawsuits alleging that they are partisan or racial gerrymanders.

A few states are running into more trouble redrawing their lines, particularly those where the two parties share redistricting power. The bipartisan redistricting commissions in both Virginia and Washington failed to meet their statutory deadlines to approve a map, kicking their redistricting processes to their respective state supreme courts. And redistricting looks destined to be decided by a court in Wisconsin, too, where the Democratic governor has vetoed the map passed by the Republican legislature.
