The latest in Connecticut

Feb. 11, 2022

The Connecticut Supreme Court approved the state’s congressional map on Feb. 10 after a long and drawn-out process.

Control over redistricting was handed over to the court last year after a bipartisan panel of state lawmakers missed multiple deadlines to reach a consensus on their own. The new map was drawn by a court-appointed special master, Nathaniel Persily, who also drew the state’s old map when the panel failed to come to an agreement during the last redistricting cycle and the court was forced to step in.

Despite all the hassle, the new map is very similar to the old map. Connecticut will continue to have three Democratic-leaning seats and two competitive seats, with no change to the competitiveness of the two swing districts. One of the Democratic-leaning seats became slightly less Democratic-leaning, and another became slightly more Democratic-leaning, but overall, the new map seems very likely to preserve the political status quo in Connecticut.

Who controls redistricting in Connecticut right now?
Neither party fully controls the congressional redistricting process. New maps are drawn by the Democratic state legislature and enacted by two-thirds of each chamber. If the legislature fails to pass a map, redistricting falls to a bipartisan commission made up of state legislators.
